The Bid for Kids online auction to benefit the Discovery Museum is now open!

Proceeds will support our Open Door Connections program, which provides opportunities for visitors with financial limitations or disabilities to experience the museum for free or deeply reduced cost. We served more than 48,000 people in 2017 (26% of our total) through this program, which was only possible because of the generosity of donors like you.

Our commitment to accessibility has never been stronger, and will now be supported by our expanded, completely renovated, accessible and ADA-compliant Discovery Museum. Through the Open Door program, we provide dedicated, free services for under-served populations. This includes those with limited financial resources and families with children who have physical or intellectual disabilities, such as autism spectrum disorders, hearing loss, or vision impairment.
