Destination Exploration

Meet your NEW destination for exploration...

Designed for budding scientists ages 0-5, our new Destination Exploration experience offers exciting new opportunities to learn with your little one. From exploring science with one of our activity bins to enjoying an impromptu storytime, the space features places to engage in physical, cognitive and emotional learning.

Learning Zones:

1. SCIENCE ZONE

Choose your own adventure with our new activity bins! Each bin contains instructions and materials, a suggestion for a related book from the reading tree, and connections to make with exhibits around the Science Center.

2. TRANSPORTATION ZONE

From train conductors to truck drivers, step into the ultimate exploration in transportation. Encourage imaginative play by finding paths on our new train table, explore our redesigned truck, and build cars to race down the track.

3. SENSORY ZONE

Step into the Noodle Forest to explore our incredible senses. Can you hear better inside the forest or out? What does it feel like to walk through? How do the noodles change your vision? Get ready for sensory play fun!

4. READING ZONE

Find a comfy spot under the reading tree and foster your budding scientist's love of books. "Host" an impromptu storytime with other kids, ask questions when the book is over, and grab another book to explore.

5. CREATIVITY ZONE

A world of STEAM exploration awaits! Challenge your budding scientist to create incredible paintings using the interactive touch screen and explore our new light table where you can build 3D or flat objects to see how light travels through.

NEW – NURSING ROOM:

Looking for a private space to nurse your little one? We've added a nursing mothers room located just across from the Destination Exploration entrance.
