Early Explorers


Beginning July 10, Early Explorers will be on a hiatus as we work on renovations to improve our Destination: Exploration preschool area and begin construction on new experiences in the Science Center. Early Explorers will return on Monday, Sept. 11. We apologize for any inconvenience.

To learn about other places to engage your preschooler during the construction process, click here»

Introduce your preschooler to the wonders of science before the Science Center opens to the general public! On select Mondays*, Early Explorers can enjoy all the exhibits, see a special preschool planetarium show, and attend story time with our staff. Meet other parents. Arrange a play date. Or just enjoy having a special time for your curious little one!
