When the little ones are out of school during the summer, it can be challenging to come up with enriching, engaging activities that will get them out of the house. That’s one reason local parents appreciate Port Discovery Children’s Museum so much.
The museum comprises three floors of interactive exhibits that help the young (and the young at heart) exercise their creativity, imaginations, and social skills. Highlights include permanent collections like the KidWorks urban treehouse, the Egyptian-themed Adventure Expedition, and the Wonders of Water play area. Current traveling exhibits feature displays on puzzles, dinosaurs, and space exploration. Throughout the year, Port Discovery hosts holiday and heritage events including special programming and performances. The museum also offers packages for birthday parties, overnight sleepovers, and group events for church groups, camps, and schools. Regular tickets start at $15 for general admission, but Yelp reviewers suggest that you check the website for information about various discounts.
