City leaders consider demolishing Discovery Place


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — City leaders are discussing plans to close and possibly demolish a popular children’s museum in Uptown. 

Discovery Place was built at the corner of N. Tryon and 7th Street in 1981. The museum offers an aquarium, exhibits, hands-on activities and an IMAX theatre for shows. 

At a city council retreat, officials discussed using tourism funds to either do a full demolition or a complete rehab of the existing facility.

They have not offered any other comment on the plans.
