Becker Children’s Wing
The Becker Children’s Wing is designed as a comfortable, hands-on learning environment for elementary school children ages 7 to 12 years and their families. Here, learning is an active process and exhibitions are designed to offer children an interactive engagement with a subject. Visitors can explore the exhibition, experiment with many hands-on activities and visit the children’s gift shop.
Ancients To Astronauts: How We Communicate is now open in the Becker Children’s Wing (see the Hours page for times for Becker Children’s Wing hours during the week and on weekends). Explore the theme of communication through four exhibitions featuring hands-on, interactive displays and activities on different subjects.
• Experience weather and learn how weather reports are broadcast
• Travel to Ancient Egypt in a time machine
• Blast off in a Friendship 7 capsule in our Space Exhibition
• Discover new crafting experiences in our popular Green Arts Studio
The six-and-under audience will have a magical undersea learning experience playing in our popular WonderWing.
Children can explore a pirate ship, perform in a Tiki theater, climb a tree house, experience a kelp forest, slide down a whale slide, and listen to a moving waterfall.
Birthday parties are often booked in advance so be sure to call first to make sure the WonderWing is open.
