By focusing on Army history and innovations, the ELC provides a state-of-the-art, hands-on experience for all ages.
Join us in the Assembly Area to begin your ELC adventure. In this dynamic space, we introduce visitors to members of the diverse Army family and give them an overview of what it takes to keep the Army running.
Join us in Fort Discover, where young visitors can use imaginative play to climb an Army tower, radio friends, drop cargo supplies, launch a space rocket, drive a jeep, serve up chow in the dining facility and check out different uniforms with Camo Camera! Our animated Army mules, Buckshot and Blackjack, use age-appropriate interactive games to teach children about Army innovations across history—such as interstate highways, the Panama Canal and satellite communications.
In the Training Center, visitors simulate work done by Army Soldiers in the fields of Geography, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (G-STEM).
The Learning Lab enables visitors to apply skills learned in the Training Center and work collaboratively on Operation Safe Passage.
