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!
