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 Douglas J. Husband Discovery Centre is a scent-free environment. As per the City of Delta's Health and Safety Policy, scented personal products should be avoided when in our facilities.
