We are more than a museum. We’re a bunch of passionate, inquisitive, world-questioning folks who are awestruck at the amazing wonder that is our world. Join us as we muse about science, technology, engineering and math. Learn something new. Ponder a different theory. Pick up some facts for trivia night. And if we may be so bold – enrich your appreciation of science.
