Round up your family and come experience all that the Hall has to offer with activities open daily. Test out the new stations in our Design Quest exhibit, where you can create stop-motion animation and harness the wind with wind turbines.

Try your hand at our December Ingenuity Lab Challenge: Marble Machines, where you will design and build original structures to test the principles of engineering. Experience science on the big screen with our two National Geographic 3D films, Meerkats 3D and Mysteries of the Unseen World, then search for new planets in our NASA-inspired Planetarium programs.
