The Discovery is open 10:00am to 5:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays. We are excited to welcome you back to the museum and want to make you aware of the changes you can expect as we reopen.
To encourage social distancing, total museum capacity will be limited to 250 visitors at any given time. To guarantee entrance to the museum without waiting, we recommend purchasing tickets in advance.
Visitors ages 5 and older are required to wear face covering while at the museum.
Museum staff will be frequently cleaning and sanitizing the museum throughout the day. Museum spaces may be closed on a rotating schedule throughout the day for deep cleaning and sanitizing. Some exhibits may not be available due to cleaning sanitization limitations.
To continue to deliver the museum’s mission, and serve the needs of our community, The Discovery has launched a new Hybrid & Distance Learning Support program designed to serve the educational needs of families with students on hybrid schedules and in distance learning.
