Membership Extensions

Your membership was automatically restarted on July 16th and four months will be added to the end of your membership to account for the closure during COVID-19. If your membership lapsed during the closure (March 16, 2020 – July 16, 2020), you will automatically receive an extension for the amount of time your membership was valid. 

What to expect during your next visit?

With reopening comes some operational changes to ensure both the safety of our visitors and the sanitization of our space.  

Hours of Operation

We will start by reopening Thursday – Sunday, 9:00am-12:00pm & 1:00pm-4:00pm 

Online Admission Tickets

To monitor capacity and follow Nova Scotia Public Health Authority guidelines, we ask that you now purchase your admission tickets online before arriving at the Discovery Centre. For members this will mean selecting the ‘member’ ticket type for each family member coming to the Centre. 

Tickets are only valid for the timeslot purchased (9:00am-12:00pm or 1:00pm-4:00pm). You may arrive at any time during your timeslot, however, in order to give staff time to clean during the changeover, all visitors must leave at the end of their timeslot, regardless of when they arrived.  

Tickets are not transferable to another time or date.  

What to Expect

  • Follow directional routes throughout the building to make it fun for your family and to ensure physical distancing measures are adhered to inside the Discovery Centre 
  • Hand sanitization stations will be readily available throughout the facility 
  • High interaction areas like the front desk and café have been enclosed in plexiglass for the safety of staff and visitors 
  • Cleaning procedures of high touch areas have been increased 
  • A staff member will greet your family at the door, scan your ticket, and explain some of our new procedures 

Do Your Part!

  • Stay with your group during your visit 
  • Maintain physical distancing between groups 
  • Follow the designated routes 
  • Wash and/or sanitize your hands frequently 
  • Wearing a mask is mandatory during your visit
  • One group in the elevator at a time. If you are able, please consider using the stairs
  • Delay your visit if experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 

Discovery Centre Memberships support our efforts to build curious minds and offer the best educational and entertainment value for families across Nova Scotia. Members also receive free admission to our family of 300+ Science Centres across the globe!

Discovery Centre memberships are limited to residents of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. We encourage visitors to purchase a membership to their provincial science centre that may be used for free reciprocal admission to the Discovery Centre when they visit.
