About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to inspire the next generation of innovators, engineers, and creative problem solvers.

What We Do

Our exhibits, programs, and design challenges engage kids in science, technology, and engineering and make learning memorable and fun.

Dreams need doing, and exploring engineering gives a child the power to make stuff, break stuff, and make it better! We need the imagination and skill of engineers to solve the problems and address the challenges of our modern world. Engineering fuels collaboration, persistence, and problem solving; critical skills for every child from every walk of life. The Works Museum welcomes you to explore engineering and stretch your imagination.

Visit our Museum with your family or group, and be sure to check out our birthday party packages, field trips, programs we can bring to your school, camps, and incredible events and special activity days.
