FAQ
704_edited.jpg

What is the admissions policy?


Kids Discovery Station is designed for children ages 0-12 years old, with the following admission policy: • For the safety of all our guests, children must be supervised by an adult caregiver at all times. • Guests are welcome to enter and return to the museum for day-of visits with their receipt (in and out privileges for day of visits) • At this time, we ask guests to consume all food and beverages outside of the museum. Bottled water is acceptable. In order to minimize the risk for children with nut allergies we hold a “nut-free” policy.




How much is admission and what does it include?


Admission for the day is $7 per person (adults + children over 1). Children younger than one receive free admission. Little explorers planet (LEP) is offered to children 5 and under and offers a nursing and changing room space. Tickets can be purchased online or in-person and it includes access to the whole museum. Members can access the museum for free year round. Advanced tickets can be purchased through our calendar.




What are the museum’s COVID-19 policies?


At Discovery Kids Station safety is at our highest priority. The museum’s COVID-19 health and safety policies are informed by the most up-to-date local guidelines.
