Explorium Exhibits

The Children’s Science Explorium presents its own hands-on science exhibits all year long. These exhibits are usually designed in-house and offer a fascinating variety of interactive components for our guests to explore and investigate at their own pace. The Children’s Science Explorium also hosts traveling exhibits from national and international science museums, in the fall and spring of each year. All exhibits are intended to spark a child or adult’s natural curiosity about how and why things work as they do. Each invites visitors to explore, build and examine their understanding of the fantastic world we live in!


Traveling Exhibits

Every year, once in the fall and once in the spring, the Children's Science Explorium brings in two brand new traveling exhibits to entertain kids and parents alike. These exhibits stay with the Explorium for about four months before they leave on their way around the country once more. Below, you will find the current and upcoming exhibits, as well as the dates for these exhibits..


~ Now on Display!~


Did you know there are a billion nanometers in 1 meter? Scientists use nanometers to measure really tiny things, like cells and parts of cells, and can build structures that are only a few nanometers tall. Really BIG things are happening inside the tiny world of nanotechnology, and some of these discoveries are destined to change your world! Come explore It's a Nano World for a chance to separate cells in a giant Cell Sorter, play Giant DNA, Dust and Germ Pinball, zoom into your own hair and skin, measure your height in nanometers, and more!
