Click here to check out PurpleAir and see a few different spaces inside and outside the building. During smokey periods, it's a good idea to stay indoors. ScienceWorks also has HEPA filters to help scrub the air for our visitors.


How do I bring my educational group to the museum?


Should I become a volunteer?

How old do I have to be to volunteer?

The minimum age to volunteer without parent or guardian present during your service is 13 years old.


If I don't understand an exhibit what do I do?

Explore! Sometimes curiousity is more important than finding the "right" answer.

If something seems like it's not working properly, please let our friendly front desk staff know and it will help us get it repaired. Sometimes the exhibit is not broken at all, and in that case we'd be happy to show you how it can work. 

Where is the Bubble Room?

The Bubble Room is planned to be back in an outdoor capacity sometime in 2023-2024. It's prohibitively expensive to maintain indoors. If you would like to see the Bubble Room come back sooner, consider Sponsorship or Donation.
