CAN DISCOVERY WORLD HOST EVENTS DURING MUSEUM HOURS?

Yes, events can occur while the museum is open. However, some locations can become less private while the museum is open due to general admission traffic. Events occurring before or after hours of operation are subject to a security charge.

Payments can be made using all major credit cards or check.
