We've got big plans!

After entering the museum, you'll find our welcome desk where you'll pay your entry fee or show your membership card.  This space will also include a small retail area where you can purchase educational toys and other gifts.

Next is our Science and Engineering themed Water Table.  Children will be able to build their own boat at the Boat Building station, then take it over to the water table and send their boat through the interactive Soo Locks exhibit.

Through a doorway, children can follow the interactive water table into the Nature-themed half. In addition, a fish-matching station, and multiple interactive tree learning stations that will change with the seasons.

Our exhibits will include a Sensory Room -- a space specially designed for sensory calming, with soothing lights and sounds and soft seating.  In a environment with so much to take in, this space will provide children who need a sensory break with a place to find calm.
