Through hands-on exploration, these exhibits engage, educate, and inspire children of all ages.



Leap into the world of electricity with our new exhibit! Make static electricity with a Van de Graaff generator, create electricity with a bike, and find out where the electricity in your house comes from... just to name a few. 

WaterWays to the future


Make a splash while discovering the physics of water!
Our new water table features Mount Helena, Helena’s iconic fire tower, and artwork showcasing Helena’s landscape, including the Sleeping Giant Mountain and Helena Cathedral. Museum visitors can interact with the exhibit by making the clouds rain, go fishing, fill water buckets, and play with the water wheel.
