Directions and Parking
202 S Willson Avenue
Directly behind the museum, accessible from Willson Ave. Appropriate spots marked CMB
There is also free parallel street parking on both Willson and Olive, surrounding the museum.
STEAMlab is a hands-on, mentor-led space where children ages 8 & up construct meaningful projects, build skills and unlock understanding. View hours and programs here!
It’s A Bug’s World
Explore the world of bugs! Dress up like a bug; view live crickets and hissing cockroaches; learn what is a bug and what isn’t; and combine technology and insects to guide your own hexbug through our maze.
Exercise Your Imagination
Discover the wonders of Montana. Hop on our farm horse and go for a ride; collect eggs from the barn chickens; harvest carrots, sunflowers, and corn from our garden; cast your line from our boat into local waters!
Design, engineer, fabricate and learn in our Maker Place, a tinkering zone for all ages. Projects change weekly.
Circuit Studio is all about electrons! Tap out a tune on the Toolbox Piano; activate lamps and motors at our Tangible Electrics & Snap Circuit tabletops; make a connection on the park bench to turn on the light!
Farm to Museum Sensory Garden
We’ve updated the backyard into a Sensory playground. Take your shoes off and stroll along the sensory path, deliver a secret with our whisper tube, play tic tac toe, or just sit and relax at our picnic tables.
For the Youngest Among Us
Upstairs at the museum, your toddler can practice rolling, crawling, climbing, and cruising in this space dedicated for kids aged three and younger.
Playground for the Mind
Set your world in motion! Send parachutes soaring high in the Flight Lab; test gravity, velocity and trajectory at the golf ball run; send a penny swirling down the coin vortex. It’s a playground for the mind!
