Visitors learn and thrive in this new outdoor exhibit space. Outdoor play provides for greater freedom and flexibility for all students and guests. The playground enables a greater range of active movement for our guests and for all of the educational programs that take place on site from our Museum Preschool and our Grant Education Programs, to our Field Trip guests.

Outdoor play also extends opportunities for large muscle development, core-body strength, flexibility, motor skill growth, and social-emotional development by offering variety, challenge, and complexity in ways that are not attainable in an indoor space.

The playground is a gathering place for all young space lovers to explore and imagine together. This is a fundamental place for guests to find enjoyment, develop social skills through community play and build physical activity.
