Three floors keep overcrowding at a minimum in this interactive museum. Roll a ball down a ramp to explore gravity and movement in Make it Move or create a pipe structure in Built It, using real (not plastic) tools. Blow a bubble or splash at the watertables in Waterways and Bubbles, then dry off in the AirWorks wind tunnel. The Museum also offers a special time for families of children with visual and mobility impairments to visit the Museum on Third Thursdays from 5 - 7 p.m. Visit the S.M.A.R.T. Café on the lower level, where healthy food options become an opportunity for young children to learn about Science, Math, Art, Reading, and Technology.
