The Discovereum is a multisensory, multi-media space for children and their parents to learn interactively together in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics and innovation (STEAMI). It is exhibit based, incorporating age appropriate activities for 18 months to eighteen years old.
It is a learning centre that provides a safe space for children, teenagers and families to engage in interactive learning about a diverse range of topics vital to the development of well rounded individuals.
It is the brainchild of Drs J.N. Maraire and A.N. Chiura who upon relocating back to their homeland Zimbabwe recognised a gap in children’s learning resources in areas such as science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM). They sought to establish a learning centre for children and young adults as well as a sanctuary for families to learn collaboratively and interactively with each other. And so, the Discovereum was founded as the first museum with a strong focus on free choice learning and learning through play.
