The Children's Science Explorium, located inside Sugar Sand Park Community Center, is a hands-on science center designed for children 5 - 12 years of age and their caregivers. We offer fascinating and interactive exhibits, programs and camps that bring the physical sciences to life.

From rockets to molecules, the museum engages and teaches children about the fantastic world of science! (Please note: The outdoor Science Playground will be closed for renovations beginning June 15, 2015. Look for our new fully accessible, all abilities playground Spring 2016. The Tot Lot & Carousel will be open.

We have a little girl and she has a blast exploring and playing with all of the science experiments. Even though she is too young to understand how it all works she enjoys visiting. I can't believe it is free!
