Lakeside Discovery Center

Nestled in a wooded environment on the edge of Mountain Creek Lake, the 35,000-square-foot facility is the logical starting point for a tour of Callaway Gardens.

In the main lobby, a staffed information desk and interactive kiosks provide an overview of the Gardens’ past and present, and a small theater features “The Story of Callaway Gardens,” a continuously playing orientation video. The Discovery Center also houses an auditorium, an exhibit hall, an education wing and the Discovery Gift Shop.
