Set Your Sights on Discovery This Summer

Summers at Discovery Center are full of things to do! Here are three great summer opportunities to explore the DC.

Passport to Discovery: Pick up your summer passport to fun at the front desk today. With 16 activity categories, there’s plenty to keep you engaged and your kids occupied all summer long. After you complete a task, attend a program, or explore an exhibit one of our staff will stamp your passport. After 10 stamps are collected you can turn the passport in for a prize! Stamps can be picked up at any of the following programs:

  • Snack Attack: Monday 3:30 pm
  • Storytime with Mrs. Micki: Tuesday 11:00 am
  • Earth and Space Explorations: Thursday 6:00 pm
  • Mind-Blowing Matinee: Monday 11:00 am, Tuesday 3:30 pm, Wednesday – Friday 11:00 am and 3:30 pm

Member Mondays are back! Each Monday morning in June and July members can come in at 9:00 am. That’s one full hour before we open to the public. This is a nice, quiet time to explore the museum before the hustle and bustle of camps, group visits, and our operating hours begin. If you’re not a member yet, click here to become one today!

$3 Thursdays are another great way to visit the Discovery Center this summer outside of our typical hours. Starting at 4:00 pm on Thursdays in June and July admission is just $3 and we stay open until 7:00! $3 Thursdays are a great way for parents and grandparents that work a traditional 9:00 – 5:00 schedule to see the Discovery Center too! *$3 Thursdays will not take place on Thursday, June 21 as we have a private event in the museum.
