The museum and Discovery Room are open Sunday afternoons from 2 – 5 p.m. while EMU is in session. (Please see the academic calendar for more information on when the university is in session.)


EMU is located in the northwest corner of Harrisonburg. EMU’s street address is 1200 Park Rd, Harrisonburg VA 22802-2462. The Science Center, which houses the museum, is at the southern end of campus on Park Road. It’s easy to distinguish – look for the white dome of the planetarium, which is now the Discovery Room!
