When you are looking for a place to go for a fun family outing or maybe you want to have a birthday party for your kid somewhere special there is one place you might not consider. That place is The Works Museum, which will give you a great place to visit for learning and fun. 

The mission of the museum is to inspire a new generation of engineers, innovative people, and creative problem thinkers and they succeed. Here’s what you can expect when you visit the museum.

What Activities can the Museum Offer?

When you bring the kids in for a day of learning and fun there are many things for them to try, build, and touch. The Sensor Zone is a great place for your curious child where they can experience learning with their sensors. The studio remix has sensing furniture to control a room of music and likes.

In the Sensor Swap they will do circuits to combine sensors and fun machines. In the Shape Shifter they can touch sensors to interact with a huge animated screen. There are so many things to experience in the Sensor Zone and that's just the beginning.

In the design you can make things, break things, and enjoy learning about engineering with hands-on projects. The exhibits have kids experiment with touching and trying as they build things.

The K'nex Ball Machine is great fun for you and the kids. It’s a giant sculpture built by University of Minnesota student Austin Granger. It's created by over 100,000 K'nex pieces. It's really something to see and you can stare up at it and wonder how much patience it took for him to build such a great structure.

So when you ask yourself – should I take the kids to The Works Museum, the answer should always be yes! Yes, you should take them.
