We ask that you purchase or reserve tickets for just one play session per day so that the many other children and families who are also eager to play and experience Port Discovery will have an opportunity to do so!
You may still enter and play even if you arrive later than planned! You may arrive at any time during your reserved play session and will need to exit promptly by the end of your session.
If you are running late and need to reschedule your visit instead, please reply to the email confirmation you received when you purchased your tickets or call the Port Discovery Box Office at 410.864.2744 on the day of your visit and request to reschedule your visit to another date and/or time, subject to availability and a rescheduling fee of $5.00. Visits cannot be rescheduled after your purchased/reserved ticket visit date has passed.
The Museum is closing for an hour in between play session to allow Museum staff to reset and prepare the Museum for the next fans of play.
Port Discovery is currently operating at a significantly reduced capacity (approximately 25% capacity) so that our visitors can explore the Museum in an environment that allows for plenty of space and social distancing. Many of our current dates are selling out, meaning that many children and families are unable to experience the joy of play and learning at the Museum. So that more families can enjoy the Museum – and so that Port Discovery can continue to thrive as a non-profit organization that serves our community – we are creating two daily play sessions so that we can welcome more visitors to the Museum while still maintaining very limited total capacity and room to allow for safe physical distancing.

We're very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. To ensure that there's plenty of room for play, learning, and safe physical distancing, we've significantly reduced the number of tickets for each of the Play Sessions that Port Discovery offers. This means that you'll enjoy the Museum experience with fewer people, but that tickets may not always be available for the day you'd like to visit. Since many of our current dates are selling out, meaning that many children and families are unable to experience the joy of play and learning at the Museum, we are shifting to offering two daily play sessions on each day the Museum is open beginning June 2, 2021. So that more families can enjoy the Museum – and so that Port Discovery can continue to thrive as a non-profit organization that serves our community – we are creating two daily play sessions so that we can welcome more visitors to the Museum while still maintaining very limited total capacity and room to allow for safe physical distancing.
