NOTICE

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

 

Growing up is no small feat. Wonder Years: The Science of Early Childhood Development brings people of all ages through the process of exploring, testing, and playing that young minds go through to learn how the world works.

Kids of all ages, teens, and adults alike are invited to explore the changes that happen in early childhood development. Cook in a pretend kitchen, see the world through babies’ eyes using special glasses, play with giant building blocks, find out how babies are better at matching monkey faces than adults, and learn more about how we all learn and grow in this interactive exhibit.


Bring your preschoolers to a Preschool Party! Our youngest scientists can enjoy hands-on activities, storytime, live science demonstrations, and more.

Think Summer (Camps)!

It's never too early to think about summer. Signing up for summer camps is an excellent way to help nurture your child's interest in science.
