Construction Update 10/25/2021

In our continuing efforts to renovate & reimagine Discovery, our lower level will be closed for construction for the next 2 weeks. We wanted to give thanks to the State of CT and the DECD for making these critical improvements to our facility possible through a bond granted to us in 2019.

Affected during this time is the Henry B. duPont III planetarium, the Universe & You Gallery and our lower level, ADA bathroom.

For the next 2 weeks we will be adding additional presentations for our dedicated visitors! We will have Live Science Demos & other media presentations in our 4k theater on the upper level throughout the day with no Media Pass required. We will also be offering 25% off all admissions during this time. Thank you for your understanding as we continue our critical mission to provide STEM for all!

The Science Center offers a variety of amenities to accommodate a full experience. We believe that accessibility to all of Discovery’s exhibits is a key component of facilitating STEAM exploration!

The Discovery Science Center features ADA-compliant accessibility to all of its galleries, including the Henry B. duPont III Planetarium and Energize CT Theater. An elevator to access all 3 levels inside the Science Center, and access ramps outside are available to all guests.

We offer a semi-private room on our main level to serve as a quiet space when needed. Changing stations are located in the restrooms on the Upper and Lower Levels. A new family restroom and sensory center are coming soon!

We encourage guests to bring a bag lunch and/or snacks! A dining court is available with tables and chairs and a lovely view of the ropes course at The Adventure Park (light snacks and vending machines with soft drinks are available).

We are happy to accommodate additional needs to the best of our abilities. For special requests, please contact Guest Services at 203-416-3523, or contact
