The Workshop

The Workshop is The Works Museum’s new 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.

It’s also where visitors participate in our own Engineering Design Process. You might test and share feedback on prototype activities for a new camp,  try out a new experience we’re considering for the Museum floor, or experience a feature with one of our STEM partners. You might also find new or much-loved design challenges, or suggest something you’d like to see us workshop for the Museum.

The Workshop is a dynamic space where you’re the engineer. Come create, make, and problem solve with us today!
