Throughout the year, rotating exhibits and annual festivals like Spooky Science and Gingerbread Science ensure there's still something new to explore. Their education activities take priority around the four main programs that support their mission, including STEM skills, early literacy, healthy living, and environmental management. It offers free museum general admission to 3 campuses.
