Port Discovery is not your typical Museum. Here, children and adults are encouraged to play, to laugh, to climb and stomp, to dance and sing, and to learn through the joy of play. Join us in our mission to bring joyful play and learning to everyone. Become a member, make a donation, or support us as a volunteer!


Become an annual member for unlimited access to open play sessions and programs at Port Discovery Children’s Museum while supporting education opportunities for other children.
