Located in the Heart of Helena, ExplorationWorks has something for kids ages 1-100! Explore your way with our many hands-on activities and exhibits focused on all things science, technology, engineering, and math. Navigate the physics of water at our water table, open and close tubes to design your own air pathways at the Air Maze, and wear your creative hats with reverse designs at the Pin Impression Board. Major exhibit changes occur 3-4 times per year, so no two visits are exactly alike. The Explore Store features smaller versions of some of our exhibits, so you can take a little part of your experience home with you!Plan to visit ExplorationWorks during your Helena vacation using our convenient Helena vacation site.

When I walked in I thought it was small, but this little museum packs a big punch. Lots of activities and everything was hands on. We took our 5 & 8 year old boys and they played for over and hour...

Would definitely recommend to families with young children. The water area is my nephew’s favourite place in exploration works and he would spend all day there if he could.

My kids, ages 5-13, love visiting Exploration Works at least once a month. My youngest (5) had her most recent birthday there and she and her friends had a scientist at the party that helped them do their own expirement. It was a great hands on experience that they all enjoyed!
Great interactive science museum for younger children. Lots of activities. After playing here stop by next door at the Great Northern Carousel to ride on the carousel and enjoy some ice cream.
