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.


Open to the Public:
Monday - Friday
2:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Saturday - Sunday
10:00 am - 10:00 pm

*School Tours available on weekday mornings by registration.


School Tours

Join us weekday mornings for school tours! During this 2-hour tour students will learn all about agriculture from industry experts! Kindergarten through 5th grade students will be organized into groups of 10-20 students who will be guided through the ten discovery stations. The tours will end at Farm-to-Table Cooking where all the elements of each station will be brought together in a kid-friendly cooking demonstration!

All schools are welcome! Please use the registration form below to register your classes!
