We can still have a GREAT time discovering science and will still love seeing the wonderment in your eyes.

We will be regularly disinfecting our exhibits and some pieces will be limited for safety concerns. Our Space Theater is open with limited capacity and showtimes. We will also be doing Live science demonstrations and activities, check with the front desk for times.
