From May 1, 2018 through July 4, 2018, active duty, veterans and retired military receive free admission to Port Discovery Children’s Museum. Guests of service members will receive $2.00 off general admission. Simply present valid military or veterans ID to take advantage of this offer.* Thanks to Northrop Grumman and other supporters for helping us show our appreciation to members of our military for their service.

About the Artist
Internationally acclaimed artist and trained architect Tomás Saraceno uses iridescent panels, spider webs, and inflatable orbs in three fascinating sculptures on view. The centerpiece of the exhibition, Entangled Orbits, transforms the East Lobby with clusters of iridescent-paneled modules held in place by strings reminiscent of a spider web. Appearing somewhat like bubbles, these spherical modules evoke the artist’s visionary plans for “cloud cities,” which look to naturally occurring forms for inspiration and might provide environments for future human habitation.
