ExplorationWorks Science Center

ExplorationWorks—Montana’s Science Center in Helena ExplorationWorks is a hands-on interactive science center for all ages. Two floors of exhibits and displays offer hours of fun for the whole family. Exhibits change seasonally so the center is different every time you visit. Partnerships with NASA and MIT bring world-class exhibitions to ExplorationWorks.

Classes, camps and other programs for children are offered throughout the year and create a fun learning environment for the “on the go” generation. Little Sky Country is a section of the center dedicated to pre-school aged learners.

Evening programming for adults offers an engaging alternative to TV and movies. Scientific and cultural topics of the day are the themes of most of the adult programming. Travelers welcome! Check the calendar on the website for times and dates.

Our building is one of very few privately owned facilities to earn national LEED certification as a sustainable “green” construction. Interpretive signs throughout the facility offer a self-guided tour demonstrating the varied uses of sustainable building methods and materials. Many of the commercial “green” construction methods also offer homeowners insight into sustainable and economical methods that can benefit the family home.

Our facility has an elevator, is wheelchair accessible, and accommodations are available for other folks with challenges. Just contact us in advance and we’ll make sure everybody has access to the learning and fun at ExplorationWorks.

Check the website for hours and admission prices. Memberships are available which include admission benefits to nearly 300 science centers worldwide.
