(Formerly AgriWorld)

FREE Daily Attraction

In today’s urban society, few children have the opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of the farm. Their only contact with food and agriculture products is when they see them on the grocery shelf or in their own kitchens.

Discovery Texas offers a unique educational opportunity to help students relate the foods, fibers, and other products they use each day to the industry that produces them.

As they explore a "World of Wonder" in Discovery Texas, students can experience the Secret Garden, Country Life, Wildlife Wonders and learn about the Science of Agriculture in My Community. Additionally, young children will delight in ImAGination Station, an imaginative play area designed for young children to experience amazing Farm Life.

An extra treat in Country Life is a portion of Texas Farm Bureau's Planet Agriculture, featured at the State Fair and Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo! Read more about Discovery Texas in "About Discovery Texas" below.
