First time visit, last time!

place needs a good cleaning!! Potato chips on rugs, loose debris on carpets etc. Few displays not working. Planetarium was the only good thing. Should close it for a day or two and clean it thoroughly! Will not be going back and not recomending to anyomne.

Expected more
paź 2018 • Dla rodziny
Young kids will enjoy it. I was probably expecting a little bit more if compared to similar places. We like to buy souvenirs from the places that we visit, but the store is really poor.

OK museum
sie 2019
We stopped here an hour and a half before they closed on our way to our vacation house. I was surprised by how many people were there for it being that late in the day, the parking lot was almost full (granted it's pretty small). The museum itself I was overall not impressed by, a lot of the exhibits were broken down and not working, especially upstairs. The saving grace for this museum was the Adventure Science exhibit which reminded me a bit of American Ninja Warrior, the mini version. My kids loved this particular exhibit, they spent the majority of their time there. It's a small museum and I think it has a lot of potential, just needs some updating. Would visit again if in the area just for the Adventure science exhibit!!!

Lots of potential, but needs some love.
lip 2019 • Znajomi
Nice small science center for kids packed with potential for fun, but suffering from a little neglect in the maintenance of exhibits. With a little love, it should be easy to make things shine a little more. There was a mobile STEM lab outdoors for paper rocket building (a University of Bridgeport partnership). There is an admission fee that varies by age. Always good to have a community resource like this for family fun and learning.

Exhibits need to be fixed and updated
kwi 2019 • Dla rodziny
This museum is a good place to spend a couple of hours. The exhibits are a little dated and some were broken when we visited on April 28th. Not worth spending money on admission.

Physics Lessons for Little Ones
kwi 2019
The Discovery Museum is very hands-on for children subliminally teaching lots of physics principals. There is also a planetarium with scheduled shows that is ok but was fairly boring for the children - dim visuals and narration that was a little over their heads. Best tip is to call ahead to see when groups are scheduled because you won't want to be there when a class of elementary children is there with the children running rampant. There is little supervision so you want to be vigilant if accompanying little ones - astonishingly pushy children can knock yours right over and there is no one to tell them to slow down or take turns. When you are there without a lot of other visitors, it can be a really interesting experience. There is a parking lot that gets pretty full, and an outdoor exhibit for older children.

I really dislike leaving a bad review...
mar 2019 • Dla rodziny
We packed our lunch and decided we would spend our day at the Discovery Museum, Park Ave., BPT. Today was very different than any other day we had gone there as far as where we were allowed to eat or sit. They would not let us into the cafeteria because they said it was booked for a school but there was plenty of seating and it took us maybe about 5 minutes to eat our yogurt and Apple's. The tables where they told us we could set were disgusting and nobody would give me anything to clean the tables with. There were 2 women working at the front desk and the one that I had the pleasure of speaking with today was very cranky. Usually we come across very cranky desk clerks there and just don't pay it any attention because our kids have so much fun. Anyhow we ended up sitting on the stairs to eat today while we watched the woman who told us we couldn't eat in the cafeteria sit at 1 of the tables chatting with her friend/co worker. All in all the kids and I had a really great time and they had a great time playing with the other school kids that were there to. The reason I give it a 3 stars today is because of the rudeness and also if this is a place that we are supposed to go to be able to bring our children to have lunch and to spend the day learning and science then you need to have a place where our kids can go and sit and eat at lunch and learn and set of booting them out. The school kids had a classroom that they were learning and is far as I heard and that is where they should have been eating lunch. I would not recommend purchasing a museum pass from here Unless you're looking for getting discount at the adventure park. I was totally bummed out today.

Cool Exhibits

There’s an indoor obstacle course for the littles and the third floor has cool exhibits! Sometimes the museum has free events and different activities.

Birthday party
lut 2019 • Dla rodziny
My nephew had his birthday party at the museum. A very cute museum. Very inexpensive to visit. Educational and a lot of hands on activities. We had children from 9 yrs old and under. They had a great time. Our party aides were really great with the kids and made sure all the kids were treated well.
