Happy curiosity is the hallmark of childhood. It’s a belief that makes us ask a question: What can a museum be?

It can be a place where learning feels like playingwhere “do not touch” becomes “try it out”and where there’s always a reason to come back for more!

We believe in helping children explore, so we’ve built an environment for creative play and learning that’s as one-of-a-kind as every child who walks through our doors. We do everything in our playful power to give children a chance to dream, imagine, invent and do, in childhood and far beyond.

Learning often starts at home and school. It thrives here at Explore & More—a “third place” in the world for children and families to play and learn together.
