Due to safety concerns around COVID-19, the Science Museum of Minnesota is temporarily closed to the public.

In this new addition to the exhibit galleries, every field, court, track, and gym becomes a science lab! By studying the body in motion, you’ll gain a better understanding of exactly what it takes to make that basket, swing that racket, or score that goal.

Included with museum admission.

Motion Lab
Motion Lab

Throw a football, complete a goal kick, do a cartwheel, and more. Then, play back your video, analyze your movements, and compare them to professional athletes.

Born to run
Born to run

Race against a T. rex (spoiler alert: you won’t win!), professional athletes, or Minnesota Twins mascot T.C. Bear (spoiler alert: best start).

Faster, higher, better
Faster, higher, better

Practice your high jumps, then measure them against other visitors and some of the most famous basketball players in the world.
