Once Sci-Port opens up again, patrons will receive a temperature check before being allowed inside.

I am not going to throw a child out of a building because they aren’t wearing a face mask,” said Executive Director Dianne Clark.

Sci-Port will open their new exhibit called the Gallery of Intrigue. Originally, the exhibit was to open in March. “Visitors will check out the new area and do like a mini escape room activity except you aren’t locked in,” said Programs and Education Manager Lou Papai. The exhibit will feature additions from Sci-Port wildlife partners.

Sci-Port will start summer camps on the week of June 15th. You can contact Sci-Port about the different camps being offered for this year. Sci-Port is planning to open everything on June 5th.
