We are OPEN and ready for you to come see us.
New temporary hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Thank you for sticking with us and waiting so patiently for us to re-open. Please continue to be patient as we adjust to a new temporary normal. We are confident that by working together and taking these safety measures, we can still provide you a safe and fun environment to make new discoveries!
You may purchase advanced online admission HERE. Please note, any admission discounts (student, military, senior) must be purchased at the front desk upon arrival. Members, no need to pre-purchase! Daily admission is always FREE! Just check in at the front desk when you arrive.
As of Friday, July 3rd, face masks or coverings are required inside DHDC, per the Governor’s orders. We realize this is an inconvenience and hope that you understand that it is necessary for us to remain open for you and your family. We can still have a GREAT time discovering science and will still love seeing the wonderment in your eyes.
We will be regularly disinfecting our exhibits, some pieces will be limited for safety concerns. Our Space Theater will be open with limited capacity and 2 showtimes daily at 11:00am and 1:00pm. We will also be doing Live science demonstrations daily. We are also excited to announce that our Spring traveling exhibit, Amazing Butterflies will remain fluttering around our museum until August!
Please note, in accordance with Governor Abbott’s Phase III reopening guidelines, we will be operating at reduced attendance levels. We will also be implementing:
  • Staff safety requirements: masks required, daily health screenings.
  • Visitor safety requirements: Masks required, health screening upon entry. 
  • We are only allowing groups of immediate family members only at this time.
  • Credit cards are preferred.
  • No outside food or drinks. 
  • Please keep 6ft distance between your family and others while visiting.
  • Hand sanitizing stations throughout the museum.
We can’t wait to see your smiling and inquisitive faces this week! See you soon! 
*Due to the small interactives of several pieces, some exhibits will remain closed until further notice. A majority of our exhibits remain fully functional and open.
