Artifact Collections

The Charlie Campbell Science and Technology Center allows kids to explore, create, and observe science and technology in action. The Creative Center is a great exhibit for the budding artist, musician, playwright, or journalist. In the Kids Construction Company, future engineers and architects can build to their hearts content. The Toddler Exploration Center provides an area for little ones between ages 1 - 4 to climb, crawl, create and play, and in Rainbow Farm, children can harvest and plant the garden, explore the pig pen, gather the eggs from the chicken coop, dress up as a barnyard animal and learn to milk a cow.
