Inside Look: Updated & New Museum Amenities

We heard your suggestions and needs loud and clear, Fans of Play! 

In addition to Port Discovery's BIG new exhibits, The SkyClimber and The Port, the Museum knew it was necessary to refurbish and add some of the essential guest amenities found within Port Discovery. After recieving feedback and suggestions from Museum Members and guests, Port Discovery made plans to completely revamp the lobby, bathrooms and lunch room, add a private Nursing Station located inside the Tot Trails exhibit, and provide more family seating areas throughout the Museum. 

Take a peek at the updates for yourself below! 

1. The Lobby & Box Office Area

Port Discovery Lobby - Colorful Polka Dots

Enjoy a bright and colorful welcome to Port Discovery as you enter our brand new lobby! What could be more fun than giant polka dots?!

HACK: The lobby is also a great spot to grab a family photo when you arrive or before heading out! 

2. Bathrooms

Woohoo! Restroom re-do-do! Port Discovery is thrilled to provide new bathrooms on the first and second floors of the Museum! These updated (and super colorful!) bathrooms have some special features designed just for our little learners, like lower sinks and helpful toilet seats!

HACK: Enjoy new water fountains located on the first and second floors of Port Discovery! 

Bathrooms featuring short skins

3. Lunchroom & Free Locker Storage!

Port Discovery loves being able to allow Museum Members & Guests to bring in food and beverages from outside the Museum to make lunch breaks a breeze when visiting! The Museum is proud to offer a renovated lunch room as well as free locker storage (first come, first serve basis!). 

Lunchroom Lockers - free of charge

HACK: Take advantage of the no-charge Coat Rack in the cooler months! 

4. New Nursing Station 

Nursing Station

Port Discovery is thrilled to now offer a private Nursing Station for mothers located in Tot Trails! Nursing Mothers can enjoy and take advantage of this quiet and secluded room at any time the Museum is open. Have a second little one with you? No worries! There are little toys and activities placed inside to keep little ones occupied.
