All ages welcome!
Free with admission




Part of the Imagination Foundation's
2014 Global Cardboard Challenge,
with help from the
Scrap-Exchange and Splatspace.
Celebrate creativity and imagination as the Museum joins groups across the world for the third annual Global Cardboard Challenge. With an entire room full of cardboard, we'll have plenty of creative building supplies for bringing your big idea to life. Check in throughout the week as each new builder helps create our room-sized cardboard creation – be sure to come Saturday and see the final result!


Cardboard Creatures:
Early Childhood Mornings

Tuesday and Wednesday
10 to 11:30am

We invite families with children under 6 years old to join us for activities specially designed for our youngest visitors. An educator will be available during these times to help kids create take-aways with cardboard tubes and boxes. Children must be accompanied by an adult. While supplies last.

Tuesday: Tube Puppets
Who knew toilet paper tubes could have such personality? Turn common cardboard tubes into critters that move.

Wednesday: Shoebox Bots
Cardboard building sequence: Activate! Build a robot with a shoebox base.
