We have missed you and will be so happy to welcome you back!  The safety and wellness of our visitors is incredibly important to us. While closed, we’ve been working on new ways to keep everyone as safe as possible while learning and playing at the Discovery Museum!

A few things you need to know before visiting…


New Hours

The Discovery Museum will be open Wednesday – Saturday with two daily shifts to visit. 9:30-11:30 am & 1:30-3:30 pm  The Museum will close mid-day to sanitize, clean surfaces, and swap out exhibit accessories for daily deep cleaning.

New procedures to keep you safe! 

Masks will be required for all guests ages 5 and older throughout your visit.  To visit and play at the Museum, you MUST wear a mask, no exceptions.

Upon check-in, a Museum staff member will take the temperature of all the guests in your party via a contact-less forehead thermometer. All temperatures must read 100.4 degrees or lower to enter.

We ask that you not visit if you’ve had a fever in the last 24 hours, have shown any signs of illness or have been in contact with anyone showing signs of illness.

You’ll find social distancing dots throughout the Museum placed at 6 foot lengths to help you stay a safe distance from other visitors.

Hand-washing or sanitizing stations will be available on all floors of the Museum and the use of these encouraged throughout your visit.



New cleaning procedures

The Discovery Museum has always been acutely aware of cleanliness, sanitizing exhibits and museum spaces to ensure a healthy environment. Due to COVID -19, our procedures have been elevated to include a mid-day closing every day 11:30-1:30 to disinfect all surfaces and swap out exhibit accessories for deep cleaning, in accordance with the CDC requirements

Admission – MUST be reserved in advance

To protect you and your children, the Museum will be reducing our capacity of visitors in the museum at one time. Admission tickets MUST be purchased online before coming to the museum. Choose a morning OR afternoon time slot on the day/date you plan to visit. Either print your confirmation at home or show confirmation on your device at check-in. Tickets will be posted one week in advance.

Members will also need to reserve tickets online before visiting. Existing memberships will be extended by three months to compensate for the closure.

Museums for All allows those receiving food assistance (SNAP benefits) reduced admission to more than 500 museums throughout the United States simply by presenting their EBT card.
