"Discovery Woods" is a make-believe forest and biohabitat area on the second the floor of the building. It has a large make-believe timber maching that transports wood from one side to the other; a book small "book nook," a hammock, and others.
The "Space Shuttle" is a large make-believe replica of a Space Shuttle, implanted into the wall of the second floor. The site describes it as, "It's the only kid-powered space shuttle in Portland. Our space shuttle replica comes complete with astronaut uniforms and a life-size cock pit equipped with all the switches. Kids choose the flight plan - blast-off, orbit or re-entry. This is a great place to talk with kids about protecting our planet and the universe. Our mini-planetarium is also located inside the shuttle."
The third and top floor holds a camera obscura, which uses a very small hole in the top of the building, with the hole being small enough and room dark enough to allow light to show an image of the outside.
