  • is the Exploration Dome?

    One of the highlights of the Science Factory, the Exploration Dome delivers an abundance of virtual adventures that are both stimulating and educational. You’ll get a chance to see what it’s like to live through an ice age, navigate the ocean, and experience a rocket launch like a real astronaut.
  • Can I hold my child’s birthday party at the Science Factory?

    Absolutely. You’ll enjoy a private party room for two hours, lots of time in the Exhibit Hall, a gift for the birthday boy or girl, and your choice of a hands-on science activity that’s led by an in-house educator. What’s more, party invitations are included in the price, which is $95 for non-members of the museum
    and $80 for members.
