Douglas J. Husband Discovery Centre

The Douglas J. Husband Discovery Centre is an accessible space for dialogue and discovery about our community’s past, present, and future. Featuring authentic objects, digital experiences, and fascinating stories, all are welcome to engage with Delta’s storied history.

Learn by using the touchscreens in our galleries and creating new land forms in our sand table. Watch our water table demonstrate how the region of Delta was formed over 9000 years and use a wand to activate the animals in the habitat theatre. Visit and discover Delta today!

The Discovery Centre aims to be an inclusive and accessible environment for all of its patrons. If you or a member of your group that you are visiting with has an accessibility need, we would be happy to discuss and prepare with you prior to your visit.

Please call our Education Coordinator, Kendall Kloosterman at 604-952-3838 or email at We look forward to having you at the Discovery Centre!

Sensory Friendly Mornings

Join staff every Saturday from 11am-12pm and Mondays from 9-10am for a sensory friendly morning. Visit before the Centre opens and enjoy a calm, relaxed and safe atmosphere.
