Enjoy a day well spent with the whole family at Port Discovery Children's Museum!
Children grow up in the blink of an eye. Along the way, the experiences you provide them with help them grow into the healthy, happy, and successful thinkers, doers, dreamers and leaders you want them to become. Through hands-on - and fun! - exhibits and experiences, we inspire children to become active learners, to become engaged citizens, to be socially connected, and to develop their sense of self - all while creating magical memories that make imagination and wonder come to life for kids - and kids at heart!
