About Us

Discovery Museum is a one-of-a-kind event venue located in Bridgeport, Connecticut. This special museum can act as a distinct and intriguing event space for weddings and related occasions. The museum originally began life as the Museum of Art, Science, and Industry.

Fun programs take place throughout the year, offering public access to materials and sources that enhance both knowledge and understanding of the science community. When hosting an event here, couples will be able to tailor their rental to their party's size, choosing from the rooms available to perfectly suit their capacity.
