About the company:

"Educating Young Minds," is the Science & Discovery Center of Northwest Florida’s goal. Their mission is to educate and inspire children and adults through hands-on, interactive exhibits that promote the discovery of science, technology and history. The roots of the center go back to 1967, when the Junior Women’s Club and the Women's Club of Panama City conceived the idea for a children's museum in Bay County. Eleanor Lewis of the club, inspired by the Junior Museum in Tallahassee, wanted a place in Bay County for children to play and learn. Along with other civic organizations and volunteers the very first exhibit opened in 1969. The current museum site was first leased in 1972 and the present building first staged exhibits in 1981. Through Eleanor’s visionhard work and the invaluable work of volunteers, the museum grew to be what it is today. Their newest 6000 square foot center was opened in June 2010 and the museums name was officially announced as the Science & Discovery Center of Northwest Florida in April 2011.
