Discovery Station has something for everyone

To the editor:

You should visit Discovery Station — one of Hagerstown’s greatest attractions at the corner of Summit Avenue and Washington Street in downtown Hagerstown. You will be amazed at what you’ll see there. It’s very educational for both children and adults, with two floors just filled with all kinds of displays.

They exhibit a 15-foot replica of the Titanic and 1912 memorabilia; Volvo-Mack and aviation Fairchild history exhibit; the Nora Roberts Foundation Gallery with Lou Scally weather station; APL/Hopkins NASA display; five classic stories with mathematic components; Healthy Bodies Matter; dinosaur gallery; railroad exhibit; and Morse Code exhibit.

It just goes on and on with much more to see — Adventures in Agriculture; C&O Canal and Civil War displays; and music and Moller Organ historic exhibit. They have an early childhood gallery (2 to 5 years old) with many interesting things for the children to enjoy. There are pictures and information of sports in Hagerstown and the players from the area who have excelled in baseball. And a replica of a Pope Co. automobile manufactured in Hagerstown is on display.

It’s really a hands-on science and history center for all ages that will stimulate a desire for discovery, exploration and lifelong learning.
