PLAN YOUR VISIT TO DISCOVERY STATION
At Discovery Station, the safety of our visitors, volunteers, and staff is our highest priority. We also take our role in pandemic mitigation very seriously. As a public health precaution due to the significant rise in community COVID-19 cases, Discovery Station will temporarily close to the public beginning on Thursday, December 17th. It is our hope to reopen in January or when Washington County’s Covid cases decline.
The museum will continue to develop and host virtual STEAM programs and will continue to serve the public by providing free educational resources to our families. Our current members will receive an extension on their memberships to cover the time that we are closed to the public.
Please note that this decision was not made lightly. We are following the guidance and best practices of larger agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization, the American Alliance of Museums, and the Association of Science and Technology Centers.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this temporary closure, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Executive Director at Brittany@discoverystation.org.
We ask that you continue to do your part in fighting this pandemic. Wear your masks. Wash your hands. Social distance.
