Children enjoy lots of learning and play at The Discovery.

DISCOVERY MUSEUM NEWS RELEASE – Happening this month, and continuing for an unspecified limited time, Google’s Field Trip smart phone app, is granting lucky users free admission to 23 museums, science centers and zoos across the U.S. including the Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum (The Discovery) in Reno, Nevada.

This summer, users of Google’s Field Trip app can receive free admission to the Exploratorium in San Francisco, the Museum of Contemporary Art in L.A., The Field Museum in Chicago, and 19 other attractions around the country. Field Trip, which was built by Niantic Labs, a division of Google, helps users find prominent cultural attractions and lesser known facts about the places they live and visit.

“Being part of this effort by Google is very exciting for The Discovery,” said Mat Sinclair, executive director. “Being included in such an impressive list of museums, zoos and cultural attractions is a testament to the caliber of experience offered here at The Discovery.”

Google’s Field Trip app is available free for both Android and iPhone.

For more information about The Discovery, visit the museum’s website at www.nvdm.org.

The Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum is a locally founded nonprofit 501(c)3 organization. The Discovery’s vision is to inspire curiosity, creativity and the joy of lifelong learning for all children and families of northern Nevada. The museum provides opportunities to discover science, art and local history through open-ended, interactive and fun exhibits and hands-on educational programs. Explore a cave, build a house, race across Nevada, and climb into the clouds—these are just some of the many adventures found at The Discovery.
