Discovery Museum Closed Today-Thursday for Cleaning

Posted: Updated:

The Terry Lee Wells Nevada Discovery Museum (The Discovery) will be closed to the public from Tuesday, February 26th through Thursday, February 28th for cleaning and routine maintenance of exhibits and the facility. The Discovery will reopen to the public on Friday, March 1st at 10:00 am.

"Wear and tear on exhibits in a hands-on museum like The Discovery is high," said Patrick Turner, marketing & PR manager. "In order to keep everything in perfect working order and make sure the museum is as clean as possible, we schedule two short ‘dark periods' throughout the year."

When The Discovery reopens on March 1st, normal operations will resume with an impressive selection of classes and series, including:

Sensory Science Series
Saturdays, March 2–23 · 10:15–11:00 am
