Connections Gallery

Sponsored by Ginger & Barry Ackerley Foundation

This highly flexible space provides room for the large scale, non-permanent exhibits that visitors love. Sitting at the juncture of the Story Tree, Tot Orchard, and Cityscape, there is ample room for circulation, storage, and open-ended building activities. It also allows KidsQuest to host group events and activities, and can open up to accommodate large audiences for performances. Art, physical movement, performance, and improvisation are better integrated into the museum because of this gallery.

Builder Boards Sponsored by The Naini Family Foundation

The Builder Boards offer a classic building experience that combines basic structural engineering and problem solving skills. This exhibit is an incredibly fun and creative experience that brings out the builder, planner, problem solver, and architect in those who play.

Digital Interactive

Digital Interactive is a space where kids can take part in an interactive wall of projected imagery. The sensors in the interface of the exhibit detect the presence of people and their shadows, allowing manipulation of a digital display that reacts to movements.

Labyrinth Sponsored by Peter & Peggy Horvitz

The Labyrinth (or Ball Maze) is a circular, spinning, tilting, open-ended exhibit which allows kids of all ages to invent their own game and set their own goals. This exhibit allows kids to experiment with physics and hand-eye coordination, and helps them learn the concepts of strategy and teamwork.
