Plugged In

You’ve arrived at the Science Museum’s news-sharing hub. Here, you can dig in to the many projects underway at the museum that touch us here in Minnesota—and around the world. You’ll find that the Science Museum is much more than a museum—it’s an innovator in education and leadership programs, an advocate for equity and inclusion, an active research facility, an out-of-school home for an inspiring generation of future STEM leaders, an event destination for all ages, and much, much more.

So plug in to the ways that the Science Museum is turning on the science in our community, our region, our nation, and our world. We’re glad you’re here!
