Hands-on Family Fun. See, touch & explore the interactive water-focused exhibits to discover the world around you. Safe age-appropriate activities encourage imaginative play for children and the adults in their lives.
Playing in water is a favorite activity of all ages! Investigate the many properties of flowing water—create standing waves and eddies, change the direction of the flow and have a boat race through your creation.
Be a water drop! Climb with the sun, hang out in the clouds, then rain down the Precipitation Slide into the freshwater lake where you just might find a fish.
Amazing interactive fish.
