Your Next Port Discovery Children’s Museum Visit: What to Expect

We have missed you oh so much, Fans of Play!

Ready Set Play!

We hope you’re just as excited for your next visit to the Museum as we are - and we’re here to help make your next visit to the Museum be easy-peasy and just as fun as your last! While the Museum has been closed, we’ve been using CDC, State, and Local Guidelines to implement a variety of new procedures to ensure a safe visit for your family.

What can you expect during your next visit to the Museum? Check out our tips below to help prep your family for your next fun outing:

1. Physical Distancing & One-Way Museum Exploration

Expect to see fewer people at the Museum during your visit, as the total number of tickets available each day the Museum is open has been significantly reduced to help make physical distancing inside exhibits and the Museum easier.

Take note of one-way signage for entry, exit, Museum stairs, and main floors. Don’t worry, fun floor markers and reminder signage will be found in all spaces, too!

Please kindly observe exhibit capacity signage posted outside each exhibit before entering, and if the area is full, please explore one of our many other exhibit areas and come back to play later!

To encourage physical distancing and touchless interactions with Museum Staff, the use of Port Discovery Wristbands have been discontinued for guests until further notice.

2. Face Coverings & Mask Breaks

Face coverings are required for all guests ages 2 and older unless medically unable to wear a face covering or mask. Museum staff will also be required to wear proper face coverings.

In need of a mask break while playing? No worries! Just exit the Museum and use your receipt to re-enter with masks back in place and ready to play.

3. A Super Fun & Safe Family Playdate!

As you prep for your next trip to the Museum, we encourage you to read our full What to Know Before You Go Webpage and/or watch our Know Before You Go video, below.

Know that we’re doing our very best to ensure your family has a safe and enjoyable visit - and get ready for another day of Port Discovery fun you know and love!
