Ever Wonder How to Stay Safe During Your Visit?
Hygiene - Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before and after your visit. There are multiple hand sanitizer stations throughout the Museum. Our staff regularly wash their hands and the Museum is cleaned throughout the day and deep-cleaned each evening. Additional deep cleaning also takes place on days the Museum is closed to the public.
Social Distancing - The CDC social distancing guidelines requiring a 6-foot distance from others apply throughout the Museum. Families and other social units should keep a minimum 6-foot distance from others as a single unit.
Navigating the Museum – One-way pathing has been set up to navigate the Museum. We’ve added floor markers to make it easy to follow the walking route inside the Museum and to keep a safe distance from others.
Discovery Place is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our admission fees cover only a portion of the cost to provide high-quality science education experiences to our community.
