Indoor Exhibit
Opens at 10:00 am
  • Two boys play with everyday materials to make tools and toys at the Contraptions Exhibit

  • A line of dominos constructed in the Contraption Museum

Build something that does something! The possibilities are endless when you use pulleys, blocks, balls, and ramps to create your very own chain reaction contraption. Design, build, and test to see if you can make a ball fall into the bucket or whatever action you may imagine! This exhibit is recommended for ages 7 and older.
