We visited Port Discovery based on other reviews. It’s a great place for kids age 5 and under. My 6-yr old was a bit bored in the toy kitchen and several areas meant for younger children. She enjoyed the climbing structure and art room. We didn’t experience the water room as it was closed for maintenance. She felt done within one hour. It’s overpriced for the time we spent. Side note- after getting parking validation ticket and using it at the adjacent market garage, it did not provide any discount, charging us the full $20.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We’re sorry to hear that your visit wasn’t as engaging as you had hoped. Our exhibits are designed for a variety of age ranges and hope that all of our visitors enjoy several hours of play and learning when they visit the Museum. We are working on ideas for new programs, events and exhibits that will engage our members and visitors. We’d love to hear any ideas that you may – especially to engage older children - have so that we can incorporate that feedback into future experiences at the Museum! We’re also sorry to hear that the Parking Validation offered by the garage did not work. While we do not manage the parking garage, if you can advise when you visited, we can alert the garage regarding this issue. Please visit our website periodically for updates on any renovations and opening of new exhibit areas. We hope you will make a return visit in the near future.
