General Info: What should we wear when we visit?

Dress for play! Activity rules the day at Port Discovery, so we suggest wearing comfortable clothing and closed-toe, rubber-soled sneakers or shoes.We’d recommend not wearing high-heeled shoes or boots, open-toed sandals, or flip flops, and suggest removing all loose or hanging jewelry before you play. 

A few very important things to note:

  • Socks are required in the SkyClimber. You are welcome to bring your own or you may purchase socks from our Box Office while at the Museum. 
  • Shoes need to be removed to use the SkyClimber. You’ll find shoe cubbies at the base of the SkyClimber to store your shoes.
  • If you plan on climbing the SkyClimber, you will be asked to remove and store anything that could become a hazard when climbing.
  • Shoes are required in other areas of the Museum, so when you’re done climbing on the SkyClimber, please put your shoes back on to explore. 
  • We suggest packing a change of clothes if you’re visiting the Wonders of Water exhibit - most guests report getting wet in this area!
