Our Exhibits

A-mazing Airways

With the turn of a key, the power of air gives
flight to soft scarves and balls through a variety of clear tubes! By turning a couple of knobs, the direction and exit location can
be changed – making science entertaining and fun!

Ambulance

Our ambulance has enough room for both the paramedics
and patient, and includes a phone with a direct line to the Hometown Hospital! As they "drive" to the hospital, children see scenes
from the local community.

Body Bubble
In this exhibit visitor's stand on a platform, and with the pull of a rope, a soap bubble slowly rises up from the ground and surrounds you. See if you can make a soap bubble as tall as you are!!
Brio Train Engine

This engine is the perfect size for children
to climb aboard and make believe they are an engineer. With activities on the outside of the engine as well, this giant Brio train is a visitor favorite!

Grocery Store

New in 2011, our grocery store is full of opportunities for educational play!  With its two child-size checkout counters, registers, and shopping carts, as well as a separate bakery, produce, dairy, and dry goods sections, children learn about making healthy food decisions and practice money/change-making skills.

Hometown Hospital

Sponsored by Mercy Medical Center, our Hometown Hospital has everything visitors need to treat their “patients” -- from an admissions desk, two exam tables, two nursery beds, as well as scrubs, crutches, a walker and a phone that can communicate with the Ambulance.

Miniature Golf

Three holes of miniature golf are waiting for
