Museum of Discovery Adding New Two-Story Climbing Structure

The Museum of Discovery in downtown Little Rock has announced a major new addition: a two-story, three-tower climbing structure, literally the biggest thing to ever come to the museum, which will be installed around the stairs.

This is part of an effort to not only recover from the 2021 flood that devastated the museum, but to to make it better than ever before, and the announcement asserted it was only the first of more exciting additions to come.

Since the structure is being installed around the stairs, the entire downstairs of the museum will be closed from Tuesday, Sept. 27 through Friday, Nov. 18 — just a brief three weeks. To make up for the closure, museum admission has been reduced to $5 for all ages until the debut of the climber and reopening of the downstairs area.

The opening of the climber will be accompanied by another change: to help support the museum and its new additions, the price of membership will be increased for the first time in over a decade. For example, family memberships, which cover five people and also come with free admission to the Mid-America Museum in Hot Springs, among other benefits, are currently $85 and will be raised to $100.

Current members will be invited to a private climber preview party before it opens to the public. You can also renew your membership now to take advantage of the cheaper rate, and those with time remaining in their current membership will have it carry over. For example, if you currently have four months remaining, you would then have 16 months after renewing your membership.

The announcement hinted that there are more additions and renovations in store for the next year and a half, so keep an eye out for new things to discover. Visit the Museum of Discovery’s website to purchase or renew a membership or to make donations toward the continuing renovation efforts.
