Explorers Landing

NOTE: Explorers Landing is reopening on Jan. 29! Beginning Jan. 4, the Coca-Cola Cafe will no longer house the temporary children’s play area in preparation for the reopening. The Family Art Studio will remain open and hands-on programs will continue. Check out our calendar for upcoming program dates.

This is a must-stop spot during your Museum adventures for children of all ages. Spend hours in our interactive children’s area “shopping” in McGregor’s Market grocery store and kitchen, discovering local animals in the Puppet Tree Theater and creating giant bubbles in the Bubble Cave. Explorers’ Landing is packed with fun, fascination and fantasy where children can learn through play!

Have some hands-on fun and learn the science behind bubbles and caves in our Bubble Cave! How do bubbles work? Why do they pop? What exactly is a sinkhole? All of your questions can be answered with some firsthand experience in the Bubble Cave! Appropriate for children ages 2 to 102.

Explorers Landing and the Bubble Cave close at 4:30 p.m. daily.
