Important Update

Mask Policy Update - masks no longer requored

Port Discovery strongly encourages visitors two and older to continue wearing masks when visiting the Museum. Please purchase your ticket online in advance of your visit. We ask that you please continue to stay home and not visit the Museum if you are sick.

Our visitor services staff continue to wear masks, and we continue to regularly clean surfaces, exhibits, and toys before, during, and after your visit. In addition, capacity remains limited so that there is room for play and physical distancing. If you have any questions about this updated mask requirement, please contact us at 410.727.8120. We hope to see you for a day full of play, learning, and magical memories soon!
