The Children's Science Explorium, located inside Sugar Sand Park Community Center, is a hands-on science center designed for children 5 - 12 years of age and their caregivers. We offer fascinating and interactive exhibits, programs and camps that bring the physical sciences to life.

From rockets to molecules, the museum engages and teaches children about the fantastic world of science! (Please note: The outdoor Science Playground will be closed for renovations beginning June 15, 2015. Look for our new fully accessible, all abilities playground Spring 2016. The Tot Lot & Carousel will be open.

This is an excellent Museum for kids, the Museum has a ton of exploratory things to see touch and participate in and also has the Play area outside for kids, its really a great way to spend the day if you're in the area.
