Fresno Discovery Center
Deutsch Cactus Garden
Our Center exhibits highlight Fresno culture and have been designed to nurture visitors scientific imaginations, build their confidence, competence, and encourage them to test, tinker, create, and wonder! Our exhibit philosophy responds to a persons need to learn through concrete interactions — touching, exploring, manipulating , experimenting and hands-on learning.
The Deutsch Cactus Garden is an extraordinary garden filled with over 250 different types of cactus and succulents. The garden has lived at The Fresno Discovery Center in Fresno, California since 1995, where it has been satisfying the needs of cactus aficionados, to curious children looking to explore the world of cactus and succulents ever since. Enjoy a walk down the trail to witness this marvelous world of exotic desert plants.
