Construction on two new immersive exhibits, the Port Exhibit and the SkyClimber, along with work to improve the Museum’s lobby, add a nursing station and family seating, renovate our lunch area, and to update Museum restrooms, is expected to take about four months, with the grand opening celebration for two new exhibits taking place in late spring 2019.
As with any building project, plans evolve. We will keep visitors updated throughout this project and announce plans for the grand opening of new exhibits as the opening date nears. Updates can be found at PortDiscovery.org/Construction.
