A night for members to see our exciting new exhibit after hours and without the crowds. Try out our latest maker workshop, too!

Wired to Wear

Our latest temporary exhibit examines the impact that wearable tech will have on how humans live, communicate, work and achieve. Learn the stories behind today’s innovators and their high-tech creations while asking yourself, "What will my clothes be able to do for me in the future?"

Wired to Wear timed-entry tickets are complimentary for this event, and must be booked in advance.

Makers United

We’re launching a design experience where anyone can build a wearable product. Be part of the maker movement—you'll jump into circuit building and the manufacturing process. Plus, discover equipment that can continue creative ideation at home.

Makers United timed-entry tickets can be added for the member discounted price of $11 for adults and $8 for children. This workshop is limited to ages 6 and up, due to assembly with small parts. Children 6–12 must have a ticketed companion age 18+.
