What to Know Before You Visit

Safe, Clean and Fun has always been our motto and now more than even, we are making sure that The Discovery Center is continually cleaned and disinfected. We are following local, state and CDC Guidelines while we adhere to the best practices within the Association of Children’s Museums, of which we are a long standing member.

To ensure that your family has a safe experience we have put the following procedures in place:

  • The Museum will be open for limited days and hours. Please check our website for current information.
  • We ask that you, and any member of your group, stay home if you are not feeling well the day of your reservation. Visitors will be asked to attest to their health per the guidelines set forth by the CDC and Broome County Health Department. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. By visiting The Discovery Center you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
