LightPlace is a bright experience for our youngest scientists. This exhibition promotes skill development and exploratory learning in children 5 and under with fun, hands-on STEM activities.

Encourage your child to play, explore, discover and learn in a setting that advances problem solving, environmental awareness, motor skills, sensory perception, object identification and introductory reading and math activities. Multi-sensory activities support developmental milestones that cultivate 21st century learning skill sets and science, technology, engineering and math concepts.

What are people saying?

"Probably the best hands-on museum I've ever seen. Great for all ages. Clean, cool on a hot day. Staff and volunteers were informative. Love the Speed exhibit and toddler area. Will be back!"
