Discovery Center Reopens July 31!

After almost five months of our museum being closed to the public, The Discovery Center is excited to begin a phased reopening on Friday, July 31. We will be open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays throughout the end of July and into August. We anticipate expanding the days we are open in September.

We know that many of our visitors may have been impacted by COVID-19 so we have reduced the price of admission for the months of July and August to $6.00 (we will not be able to honor any discounts or coupons at this time).

To ensure the safety of all our visitors and to have the best possible experience for your family, please review our new safety guidelines and things to know before you visit.

Safety has always been a top priority with our longstanding Museum motto of “Clean, Safe, Fun!” A lot of work has been done over the last several months to ensure a safe and healthy experience for all of our visitors.

Advance on-line registration will be available to help ensure that we are able to limit occupancy to 25% of our capacity (per CDC guidelines). Members will still be able to visit for free but will need to pre-register as well. Advanced registration will be available the week of July 27. Please check our Facebook page and our website for updates.
