Located in the Heart of Helena, ExplorationWorks! has something for kids ages 1-100!
Kids can explore their way through the fun of exploration and discovery, with their many hands-on activities and exhibits focused on all things science, technology, engineering, and math.
There are a host of exhibits that each offer kids exploration in a different subject matter. They can navigate the physics of water at the water table, or open and close tubes to design your own air pathways at the Air Maze. They can even wear their creative hats with reverse designs at the Pin Impression Board.
If you have little ones in the family, ExplorationWorks! also have a fun area just for those under 5 years!
A major exhibit changes occur 3-4 times per year, so no two visits are exactly alike - which is great!.
The Explore Store features smaller versions of some of their exhibits, so you can take a little part of your experience home with you! How fun does that sound!
$5.50 (Ages 2 to 18 years)
Seniors and Students with ID $6.50. Members are free.
The center offers fun summer camps and birthday party options so make sure you ask about those during your visit!
We have a full gourmet coffee kiosk with smoothies and other drinks. A selection of light snacks are also offered.
Healthy Eating Not to worry! Light healthy snacks, milk, and real fruit smoothies are available for those wanting something on the healthier side.
This science-tastic center is located at 995 Carousel Way in Helena, 59601.
Field trips are available that comply with the curriculum and content of national standards so your kids will be in safe hands. There is also a Teacher Resource Center offering more than 40 teaching kits that cover a large variety of science and engineering topics.
If you were inspired by the museum and fancy taking home your very own scientific kits to play with, then head to the gift shop. If you want to impress your friends, there are also sharks teeth, polished rocks, and even fossilized dinosaur droppings to take home! There are also fun wooden toys available.
Wide walkways and an elevator are available in the building so there is suitable wheelchair access. If there are any problems just see a member of staff when you arrive.
