Miss Perceptions's Mysteries Revealed Day
In early 2018, Port Discovery will show visitors what the future of learning and play at the Museum will look like with the opening of an exhibit and program preview area. In order to make way for this space, which will engage visitors through hands-on play and exploration, the endearing Miss Perception’s exhibit will close.

Join Port Discovery throughout the summer to use your detective skills, follow clues and solve the mysteries that lie within this endearing exhibit. Then, join us as we reveal the mysteries of Miss Perceptions and the Baffeld family and declare “Case Closed” as part of a Mysteries Revealed Day at Port Discovery when the exhibit closes to the public for good on September 17th.
