Who We Are

The Discovereum was founded as the first museum with a strong focus on free choice learning and learning through play.

Our History

The Discovereum is the brainchild of Drs J.N. Maraire and A.N. Chiura who upon relocating back to their homeland Zimbabwe recognised a gap in children’s learning resources in areas such as science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM). They sought to establish a learning centre for children and young adults as well as a sanctuary for families to learn collaboratively and interactively with each other. And so, the Discovereum was founded as the first museum with a strong focus on free choice learning and learning through play.

Our Vision

A hub for the intellectual life of the nation.

Our Mission

Create a fun-filled environment of creativity, learning, and discovery through interactive exhibits for young children, teenagers and families.

Matters of the Heart

The event we held on the 12th of February 2017 was focused mainly on creating an awareness of the facility being setup here in Msasa for the local community. The different aspects being taught at each station were practical and depicting real past events, cultures and fun science experiments. Activities included Heart Surgery Station (role play), pencil and paint art, poetry writing, interactive heart activities and puzzles, scientific experiments and exploring Ancient Egypt.

Pharaoh Fun

On the 19th of March we hosted a family open day at the museum under the theme Pharaoh Fun. The activities included Egypt Word Scramble, Paper Mache Mummies, Pencil and Paint Art, Outside Maze, Car Race Track, Egypt Puzzles and the Dino Dig. The objective was to teach the children about the history and the way of life followed by the Egyptians. We also wanted them to get an understanding of why the Egyptians followed certain cultures like mummification and burials in pyramids.
