Activities for Babies, Toddlers, Preschoolers and Children

A day well spent for the whole family!


Exhibits, activities, and events at Port Discovery are designed with little learners, their families and teachers in mind. Here, you'll find experiences that are geared especially for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and elementary aged children. As your children explore the Museum and play together, make believe, create connections, and play, parents and caregivers are encouraged to get in on the fun - and to watch, learn and be proud of what their children accomplish along the way!
