Lori Brock Discovery Center

Admission to the Lori Brock Discovery Center is included with Kern County Museum general admission. The Discovery Center is open Tuesday - Saturday 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM and Sunday noon - 4:00 PM with the exception of occasional closures for special events. Please call for more information on closures.

The Discover Center provides a special place for children to learn through play, with a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM). Build like an engineer in the Chevron Maker Annex or discover science and imagination in the Adventure Zone! 

The Kern County Museum has received a grant from Chevron to renovate the Lori Brock Discovery Center in 2019. Construction has begun in one room and will continue throughout the center until summer. Notice of closures will be updated. We are excited to show you the new changes.

The Education Department at the Kern County Museum offers guided tours, camps, and programs for children. 


Thank you to Junior League of Bakersfield and Chevron for funding the Lori Brock Discovery Center.
