Scheduled Special Events
The Discovery Museum and Planetarium opened its doors in 1962 as the Museum of Art Science and Industry with the strategic intent of emphasizing the synergy of art, science and industry. Without the support of local companies and their employees, the Museum would never have come to fruition. Over the years, your continued generosity has enabled the institution to grow into the regional destination that it has become.
As the Museum opens its doors for the next fifty years, we look to our past for inspiration and renewed partnerships. Upcoming events will showcase the cultural and industrial heritage of our region. Working in collaboration with regional organizations, we will celebrate the richness and diversity of our past as we together generate excitement for our future.

Olive is an elderly actress whose claim to fame were the iconic “Gimme the Sausage” commercials of the 1980s. A classic New York curmudgeon at war with the world, her life is suddenly shaken by a spectral male figure viewed through her living room mirror. A series of outrageous coincidences reveals that the man in the mirror has links to everyone in Olive’s world. “Laced with plenty of laughs!” – The Associated Press
Cultural Heritage Events
Hispanic Heritage Celebration Day
Every year we are privileged to present daytime and evening offerings that bring to the public unique programming that edifies, delights, and delivers a deeper appreciation of the mysteries of the universe, the laws of science, and their impact in our daily lives. Not only do these events feature special and engaging activities for both children and adults, but some serve as valuable fundraisers for Discovery so that we can continue to fulfill our mission, “to engage, excite and educate” in science and technology literacy, one of our nation’s highest educational priorities.
Come join us, and know that your participation is contributing to one of Connecticut's premiere science education institutions. We look forward to welcoming you!
