Here are some of our exhibit areas.

Movies were donated by NASA and local science teacher Fred Brown. The room is complete with black lights, glow in the dark murals and other interactive features designed to excite children about astronomy.
The Experimentation Station
Young scientists can discover the Scientific Method as they perform various scientific experiments. There is a magnet station that allows children to create out of nuts and bolts. There are dominos allow young people to learn more about the laws of physics and gravity.
The Rose Room
A cushioned area for our youngest clients: infants and toddlers. There are inclined areas and short tunnels to make navigation exciting! It offers sensory stimulation through interactive murals, activity cubes, a custom built ball pit, and mirrors! Breastfeeding moms can find a comfy chair nearby.
The Rose Room also includes a video and book on tape lending library for annual members.
Arts/Crafts and Magnet/Chalk Bridge
This area is dedicated to every type of arts and crafts. Children can make projects and take them home. Within the art exhibit is a two story bridge for chalk and magnets. A large magnetic wall and magnets provide a place to explore how magnets work. The second story chalk wall allows children to draw pictures as big as a wall!
This is a place where drawing on the wall is okay!
