The Explorers Council is an auxiliary board that serves to further the mission of Port Discovery Children's Museum by engaging the next generation of patrons and volunteers to promote awareness of the Museum's service and impact in the greater Maryland area.

Council members dedicate their time, resources, enthusiasm and social connections to achieve the goals of increasing public awareness, contributions and visitor attendance at Port Discovery Children's Museum.

This Council provides networking opportunities for members as well as opportunities for "fun"draising. The Council allows socially responsible individuals the chance to give back to their community in a meaningful, enjoyable, and mutually beneficial way.
