The Exploration Station is closed on the following holidays:
Easter, Memorial Day, July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, the Day after Christmas, and New Years Day.
Don't forget about our Annual Shutdown: Each year the children's museum closes for 2-4 weeks at the end of August and the beginning of September to update exhibits and work on major cleaning projects. Please contact the Exploration Station to verify holiday and shutdown hours as they are subject to change.
*March-April-May are busy months for school groups visiting the children's museum. We do our best to prepare our visitors when we are expecting a lot of foot traffic. We post on our facebook page daily if there is a large group visiting, but we always encourage you to call ahead before your visit during these months to make sure you have a wonderful visit!
