Guidelines for Visiting The Discovery Center

The Discovery Center is open and happy to be serving the children and families of the Southern Tier and surrounding areas. Our staff is committed to providing a safe and educational space where imagination, exploration and PLAY abound. Safety and cleanliness are our top priorities as we continually research best practices to ensure that every visitor has the safest and most memorable experience. 

We hope you enjoy your visit and see some of our newest exhibits!

What to Know Before You Visit

Safe, Clean and Fun has always been our motto and now more than even, we are making sure that The Discovery Center is continually cleaned and disinfected. We are following local, state and CDC Guidelines while we adhere to the best practices within the Association of Children’s Museums, of which we are a long standing member.

As of Saturday, February 25, 2022, our mask policy for the Museum and Story Garden has been updated. Masks are optional, but strongly recommended indoors. Staff and guests are still required to confirm that they are symptom free.

To ensure that your family has a safe experience we have put the following procedures in place:
