The HSC exhibit floor is 7,500 square feet and is self-guided and hands-on. The time needed to fully explore depends on you and the members in your party; some visitors are finished exploring in an hour, while others stay for the entire day!
HSC exhibits require active participation by the visitor. Some require dexterity and/or creativity, but all result in better understanding and appreciation of scientific principles and concepts. Make sure to hold a snake or a bunny, make a harmonograph picture, watch the kinetic sculpture, and spend a moment contemplating the beauty of our 210-gallon salt water aquarium.
365 days of free admission to our exhibit floor is included with a membership! Over 70 hands-on exhibits are waiting for you to experience and a variety of animals would love to meet you. We are constantly building and adding more exhibits.
