Bring a lunch! Discovery Museum has a large food court with windows overlooking the Adventure Park at the Discovery Museum ropes course behind our building. Our food court has two vending machines offering snacks and beverages, but no other food concessions are available on site. We encourage guests to bring your own lunch to enjoy during your visit.

Getting Here

Located in a scenic section of the North End of Bridgeport, Discovery Museum is nestled in Veterans Memorial Park just off the Merritt Parkway.  Our location at 4450 Park Avenue is minutes from the main entrance to Sacred Heart University, and across the street from the Fairchild Wheeler Golf Course.

We also share our campus with the Discovery Interdistrict Magnet School, and the Adventure Park at Discovery.
