Ancients to Astronauts: How We Communicate
From the ancient Egyptians to early rocket science and the future of space travel, the history and science of communication are brought to life through scenic displays in this hands-on, interactive exhibition designed for children ages 6 – 12 years.
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 treehouse, experience a kelp forest, slide down a whale slide, and listen to a moving waterfall.
