Thinkery is Austin’s home for “why” and “how.” A place where science and families play side by side. Where people connect with ideas by doing, making and experiencing. It’s a foundry for a new generation of innovators and creative problem solvers. And it’s a heck of a good time.To visit Thinkery on your trip to Austin, use our Austin vacation planner.

Great place that has many hands on for little ones. There's so many stores around it. There's a movie theater, bakery, apartments and Dell Children's to name a few.
