Ask Test Repeat

What do you do to answer all the ‘why’s and ‘how’s?

The scientific method isn’t just for scientists. By encouraging everyone to Ask. Test. Repeat., we’re helping dreamers and doers to ask questions, test theories and make discoveries.

We invite you to join us in the joy of discovery as we celebrate our 50th year with an exciting lineup of exhibitions, programs, films and much more!

Check out what we have planned for this year:


May 19Summer of Space Exhibitions
It really is the Summer of Space with out-of-this-world films, programs and two new exhibitions: Astronaut and Women in Space. See a piece of the moon in our Space Hall, spend an evening gazing at the stars or send your little astronaut to our space-themed summer camps.
