The Museum’s extremely popular Water Ways exhibit has a whole new look!  Splash, discover and playfully explore ice, mist and the swirling, whirling ways of water. Transform billowing mist and water domes, send objects spiraling and twisting through vortexes, investigate and sculpt ice, form fountains that funnel the flow of mist, “paint” watery designs on a large slate wall, and much more! Learn more about the new exhibit.
