“Chase is excited to help Discovery Place Science celebrate this milestone birthday,” said Justin Brovitz, Chase’s Consumer Banking Market Director in the Carolinas. “The past 18 months have demonstrated how important hands-on science education is to children and to their understanding and appreciation of our world. With that in mind, we are pleased to support a free weekend where guests can explore all the hands-on science learning and activities the Museum has to offer.”

“We are grateful to Chase for giving us this opportunity to open our doors to the community free-of-charge, just as we did on this weekend forty years ago, ” said Catherine Wilson Horne, president and CEO of Discovery Place. “As we look toward the next 40 years for Discovery Place Science, we are guided by our vision to be the hub for science education in the Carolinas as we look to inspire the next generation of great scientists.”

Discovery Place Science will be open to the public from 10:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 30 and Sunday, October 31. Advance reservations are required to enter the Museum and space is limited. Reserve tickets here and enter promo code FREE40 beginning at noon October 21. Maximum of five tickets per reservation.
