The Works Museum Bloomington

Hours and Admission

The Works Museum is temporarily closed.

While we can’t engineer with you in person, we’ve got plenty of fun for kids and families to do at home together. Join us for virtual activities like our Explore It! events, STEM Day classes, and school break camps, or engineer on your own time with an At Home Engineering Kit.
