Open Explore: KID Arcade

July 28, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

KID Museum is open to the public on Sundays with workshops in our Maker Studios and over a dozen Open Explore activities. Each weekend offers something new, providing unique hands-on learning experiences designed and facilitated by our professional Maker Educators and a team of Apprentices.

Hang out at our KID Arcade! You’ll make and build creations inspired by classic games, like your own tetris blocks for a communal tetris game, bumpers and spinners for our pinball machines, and spirograph-inspired drawings.

No registration required, drop in anytime between 10am – 5pm.

General: $12.00 (one child + two adults)
Members: Free (membership information)
