Ranked among the top five children’s museums in the United States, Port Discovery Children’s Museum offers three floors of interactive, educational exhibits and ever-changing programs for children ages birth through 10.

There’s a reason the museum has won so many awards — most recently named one Fodor’s Travel 2015 “Best Children’s Museums.” Whether it’s water splashing, tree house climbing, sleuthing, nano exploration, art creation, storytime, it all comes back to learning through play. Providing activities for infants through upper elementary school age, it’s the perfect place to kick things up a notch and burn off some energy on a chilly day {or beat the heat in the summer!}.
