Montana Science Center - Bozeman

The Montana Science Center formerly the Children's Museum of Bozeman has hosted over 100,000 children and families since opening in 2001. The Science Center presents hands-on, sensory exhibits and programs that foster imagination, curiosity, creativity, and self-confidence. Our goal is to enrich our community by providing a space where families can enjoy the magic of shared learning. Admission is $8.50 Ages 3-100. 2 years old and under are free.  

Favorite exhibits in our multi-level space include AR Sandbox, Bubble Builder, Flight Lab and a 110 gallon native Montana fish tank! Our outside play space features a Play Hive, a Pollinator Garden, and a Bug Hotel. In addition to our exhibits, the Science Center offers After-School Programs, PIR Day Camps, Summer Camps, and daily self-guided programs in our Activity Zone. 

We have had great success with STEAMlab, our powerful new engine of learning and high-tech maker space where kids ages 8 and up explore topics in electronics, coding, engineering, 3D design and robotics. During the school year, we offer a weekly Open Lab on Monday's from 3-5, Tuesday's 4-7, and Friday's 10-12 for middle and high-school aged kids, and a bi-monthly adults only STEAM meetup to encourage interested community members to learn more about the world of coding, 3D printing and high-tech fabrication.
