Which gallery will you visit first?
We have more than 150 hands-on exhibits spread out over two floors and our Outdoor Discovery Center. Our themed galleries were heavily influenced by our beautiful Pacific Northwest setting. Please use the maps and links below to preview the galleries and plan your visit.
Arts & Parts Studio
Put on a hard hat and safety goggles and use our popular builder boards to build your own home or create a sky-high Keva structure.
Kids can be community heroes with a Police Car, Fire Engine, Emergency Room and Medic One Van. Measure decibels in the Scream Room.
Enter and explore a nurse log, visit the Animal Rescue Center, climb up into the Tree House and make fancy flying machines.
