Discovery Space – Open, Reservations Req’d

We are open on a limited basis and very excited to invite you back! To provide the safest environment possible, we will require that each family register for a visit time so that we can limit the capacity and allow space for children to explore freely. Our first two-week trial of reopening will be: July 10, 11, 12 and July 17, 18, 19. Register now at – space is limited!

This is what you can expect:
•Admission is by reservation only. Make your reservation at Members still receive free admission, but are asked to reserve a time. Memberships that have expired during our COVID-19 shutdown, March through June, will still be accepted. Non-members visit at a reduced admission rate of $5/person.
•Reservations can be canceled without penalty if you or anyone in your group begins to feel sick or gets a fever. Please do not visit if you or your child are not feeling well.
•We strongly encourage everyone over the age of 2 to wear a mask. Masks are required for entry to the building for everyone 10 years and older and must be kept one while inside.
•We will do temperature checks for everyone entering the building.
•Please use hand sanitizer upon entering the building and several times while you visit. Please use hand sanitizer before and after using exhibits.
•Please maintain a physical distance of 6ft from staff members and guests who are not with your group.
