Visit Tips

Visits to the Magic City Discovery Center will certainly be exciting. With 12 galleries and over 150 interactive exhibits, you will want to allow plenty of time to explore. Before your discovery experience, check out Visit Minot to find out where you can stay, eat, shop and attend other events in the Magic City.


The Magic City Discovery Center has entrances that are universally accessible to wheelchairs and strollers. The elevators provide access to all floors and exhibits. To the greatest extent possible, we have also designed our exhibits to be accessible for all abilities. Accessible restrooms and parking are also available.

Occasionally, we host a special evening event for children who may need a quieter time or access to additional resources to enjoy the center. Check our calendar or call 701-858-7529 for details.
