What to Expect When you Visit

While visiting Explorit, you will find a variety of hands-on activities to explore scientific phenomena. Explorit's educators will be present to help guide you through your Explorit experience, so make sure to ask them any questions that may pop into your brain! Along with our rotating main exhibit, which is currently Healthy Planet, Healthy You, feel free to explore our animal alcove; if you're lucky, you may even be able to touch some of our creatures with assistance from staff. In the Discovery Den, you will find exploration-based toys  for young children to play with, along with scientific readings. If you have further questions about visiting Explorit, call (530) 756-0191.
