Your Field Trip:


Field trip groups will have the opportunity to explore four of the Museum's exhibits: 

Wonder Lab: Enter a world of water and wonder in this industrial science laboratory. Through the joy of play and experimentation, children become scientists as they use their natural curiosity to observe and explore how things work and why things happen.

Playlist: Immersed in a one-of-a-kind musical experience, children are encouraged to self-express with props and pretend instruments to create changing silhouettes on a dramatically lit shadow wall of moving shapes, set to a range of musical stylings.

Adventure City: From a market to a two-story climber to construction site, our largest exhibit space invites children to build, work, climb, and explore this bustling City. This multi-level environment encourages pretend play and limitless imagination.

Theater: In Theater, children can use props, costumes, and technical aspects such as lighting and sound to create their own productions. This exhibit encourages creativity, confidence building, and collaborative play.
