Experience The Works Museum

Our Experience Gallery

Bring in your kids for some mind-expanding fun in our interactive Experience Gallery. Experiment with simple machines, structures and shapes, sensors, and imaging and optical technologies. Kids touch, try and build as they explore how things work!

Get inspired to engineer with our newly expanded K’nex Ball Machine.

Our K’NEX Ball Machine is bigger and better than ever before. You can read about it’s recent expansion on our website but there’s nothing quite like seeing this 22 foot tall machine in person.

Build a circuit with kid-engineered components.

There is something extra special about this experience on our gallery floor. This activity was designed and engineered by 5th and 6th graders from our Next Gen Engineers Club as well as students from Success Academy. See their hard work in action and learn how circuits work by building your own! You can read more about how this experience was developed on our blog.

Brick Pixel Pics.

Our newest Museum experience is ready for you to come explore. Brick Pixel Pics lets brick lovers create 2-D art in three innovative ways. Follow a grid and complete a section of a large scale, community-built work of art. Or, create your own freestyle pixel pic on our giant brick-base wall. And finally, snap together a smaller scale image that can be displayed on our gallery wall. There are so many ways to interact with this new experience.

Build your engineering skills in the Workshop

The Workshop is The Works Museum’s creative space for families. In The Workshop, families can take specialty classes together in areas like electronics, sewing and wearable tech, woodworking, and more. You’ll be the creator, inventor, and maker – the engineer.
