Owner description: Looking for fun things to do in Helena? ExplorationWorks! Montana's Science Center in Helena knows how to help family members of all ages have fun with science. Little Sky Country is set aside especially for the pre-K crowd. Depending upon the season, you may encounter a hive of bees busily creating Helena honey or watch Trout hatchlings gradually grow to releasable size in Montana's rivers. Navigate the physics of water at our water table and experience hurricane force winds. Open and close tubes to design your own air pathways at the Air Maze. Wear your creative hats designing reverse designs at the Pin Impression Board. You never know what you'll encounter at Montana's Science Center in Helena. Come explore with us!

Exploration Works offers exploration for all ages. The exhibits change on a regular basis, so there is often something new as well as the favorites that are available each visit. In addition to the museum, there are a multitude of classes offered to encourage further exploration and learning for all ages and interests throughout the year. Check their website to see what is happening. From Little Sky Country and water tables for the little ones to space flight simulations for older "kids" and trout hatching in the aquarium, Exploration Works has something for everybody. Don't miss the gift shop and coffee cart!
