New Guidelines and Reopening Information

The Discovery Center is happy and excited to open its doors once again because we know that children need to play now more than ever. As a vital part of our community, The Discovery Center is committed to serving the children and their families of the Southern Tier by providing a safe educational place for imagination, exploration, and play. Safety is our top priority and we have made numerous upgrades to our facilities and to our cleaning protocols to ensure that each and every one of our visitors has the best experience possible.

We can’t wait to see the excited faces and hear the laughter of curious children as they walk through our doors!

Changes You Will Notice

Since the Museum has been closed, we have been working diligently to clean and sanitize all components of our exhibits and train our staff on new disinfecting procedures. Some of these are readily visible while others are not. Please know that we are constantly monitoring cleaning protocols and updates from our local and state health departments.
