El Paso Exploreum El Paso
Where are we going today?
It's fun to learn kids! We're not kidding - it really can be fun! You just have to go to a place like El Paso Exploreum to really see what it's all about!
El Paso Exploreum is a "living laboratory" museum where children of all ages can explore the various exhibits that cover a whole range of cool themes!
Some museums rotate their exhibits, but not El Paso Exploreum! They just add more cool stuff every few months, which means if you have a favorite, you can keep going back to it! (There also might be more cool new stuff for you to experience too!)
With 14,000 square feet, and over 60 interactive exhibits, you really will have a family DAY out!
Where shall we start....how about in the past! Old El Paso is a fascinating exhibit where kids can role play lives of those living in El Paso in the early 1880s. They can visit the general store, or make a stop in the bank, and for those little ones they can spend some time in the little toddler area. Don't worry if you visit the jail - you'll be let out again!
For those little tech minds there is CableWorld and High Tech Hot Spot, where kids can explore all about technology and science, and experiment with a number of sensory activities!
A popular exhibit with students is the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math exhibit, where it focuses on the learning standards and requirements of the schools, so even on their day out of the classroom you can rest assured they will be experiencing something amazing!
From airport adventures, to space travel and the creative inspiration station, kids will come away with all sorts of new knowledge...and not even realize it!
El Paso Exploreum is certainly a great place to get exploring - the name says it all!
