Play on the Plaza

Open Seasonally: May 9 - October 1, 2017

Play on the Plaza, a place for active, creative play, returns to the Sundial Plaza each summer. The plaza, located at the museum’s main entrance, offers some of our visitors’ favorite warm weather activities.

Play some tunes on the Tube-A-Phone, a kid-sized sculpture that blends music, science, and art.  At the Invention Space, make your own moving inventions on a giant gear board.  Challenge a friend to a game on our Giant Checkers set!

When it’s time to rest, relax under the shade of umbrellas and enjoy a snack sitting on the plaza benches.

For more summer fun, be sure to visit Bubbles!
