How do I buy a ticket and reserve an entry time online? I don't see a link anywhere on the website for buying tickets.
My grandkids have been wanting to go to Sci-Port, so with hesitation, I finally broke down and took them on an outing. They are 3, 5 and 7. First off, they have a $10 special going on right now which even includes an IMAX movie. What a deal! My fears immediately went away because they are on top of sanitation procedures. They even close down for an hour, sending everyone out or to an IMAX movie to re-sanitize halfway through the day. They have hand sanitizer stations everywhere and insist on masks and remind you to sanitize when needed. Social distancing is also encouraged as well as occupancy restrictions. It wasn’t a problem though. It’s a big place and room for everyone. They have a new children’s museum (POP) and it is fabulous. I saw something similar in Houston a few years ago and I was very impressed. The kids absolutely loved it. I could barely drag them out after 4 & 1/2 hours and they already want to go back. I’m very serious about COVID-19 precautions but wouldn’t hesitate to take them again. Good job Sci-Port!
Won't you please help us support education for all ages!
Will Sci-Port be open Monday the 14th for fall break? I know the aquarium is, just wasn’t sure about sci-port...
All of the educational activities for children of all ages. It is education and fun for the entire family. It keeps everyone engaged.
The GSK Science in the Summer program was fantastic. My 7 year old will be talking about this for months! Thank you so much for hosting such important programs. Programs for students will give back to our community 1000% when these kids grow up inspired to learn, eager to experience their world, and educated on the impact they can make. A big, giant "THANK YOU!" from my family. I can't wait to see what you guys have in store for the future.
I would like to thank Greg Andrews, planitarium operator, for going way above what was expected. He made my grand daughter Hailey's birthday special by showing her the sky on the day she was born. Great job Greg!!#
We're always blown away by Sci-Port Discovery Center! 😄
Thank you for the resources you make available at Sci-Port. While I assume the "RE- Discovery" tag line refers to the reopening of certain facilities, it reminded me of the fact that so much of what we value when we "discover" nature and science as adults is a re-discovery of wonder and appreciation that we had as children. I, for one, recall my fascination watching ants at work and carrying huge loads, and looking at the stars at night in awe and fascination. These things should make us reverent in pondering the meaning of it all. This "re-discovery" strengthens my belief in a higher power, and an organizing purpose (Heb. 3:4)
