The Discovery Museum and Planetarium is a nonprofit (501(c)3) organization and Fairfield County's only science museum. Our hands-on STEM programs provide unique experiences and a chance for students to learn by doing, making, and problem solving. We encourage young learners to ask questions, solve problems, and engineer solutions today so they are better prepared to embrace the challenges of tomorrow.

Beyond unique STEM learning experiences and hands-on learning programs, the Museum is also a unique venue for special events with special themed birthday party, wedding and corporate event packages available.

The Discovery Museum is supported in part by funding from The Connecticut Department of Economic and Community Development and a host of members, individual donors and corporate partners.

The Discovery Museum is open daily during the Summer, and Tuesday - Sunday during the school year. The Museum is closed for New Year's Day, Easter, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.
