For safety reasons related to accessible exit and entry, we cannot allow strollers in our historic building. Stroller parking is available in our lobby.
Providing a safe and healthy environment in which our guests can play and learn is a top priority for the Children’s Discovery Center.
The Center respectfully asks that you keep your child home if he/she exhibits any cold or flu like symptoms or any contagious illness that would put others at risk. The Center reserves the right to request visitors to leave the Center if you or your child is sick. Thank you for your understanding.
Please use the changing tables in the restrooms to change your child's diapers. Transfer of fecal germs is of great concern for children and adults. Thank you for helping us keep the Center clean and safe for all guests.
