Open for Discovery!

We are currently operating on our Summer Schedule and are open Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-4pm. We have a lot of fun new interactive exhibits, so if you haven't visited in a while, it might be time again! We are also currently scheduling group visits for Fall 2022 (see Visit Our Center on the left). In alignment with SUNY policies, masks are not currently required in our facility.

News: Walmart Supports Field Trips

Thanks to a generous Local Community Grant from the Walmart Foundation, we are now able to offer aid to local schools to cover the costs of transport to/from the Science Discovery Center. Trip organizers will be asked about this opportunity when they fill out the visit request form.
