Danville Science Center Closing 

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a rapidly changing public health situation, but one of the consistent recommendations from experts to help slow the spread of the virus has been to limit large gatherings.

To continue to help limit the spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the Danville Science Center is extending its public closure through June 10, 2020.This includes all programs and activities, The Dome theater, and public community events at the Science Center.

The policy regarding re-opening to the public will be revisited as the situation continues to evolve. The Science Center will communicate with the community through our website and social media platforms as more information becomes available.

Our doors might not be open, but the science discovery doesn’t have to stop. Want to stay in the Know? Visit the Science Museum of Virginia’s blog on their website for articles about pretty much anything under the sun (and some about space). They also have a library of videos on our YouTube channel for your viewing pleasure. We will explore ways we can continue to inspire scientific discovery while we are closed to the public so check back regularly or follow us on social for new content.

The health and safety of everyone who walks through our doors – guests, employees, volunteers, interns, partners, vendors and special event attendees – is always a top priority. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and cooperation at this time. We encourage you to stay informed about COVID-19 and to seek out trusted sources of information, like the Centers for Disease Control and the Virginia Department of Health, regarding updates on COVID-19 and actions you can take to help limit the spread.

Stay tuned for more information and stay curious.
