Smithsonian Spark!Lab, 20-Foot-Wide Street Art Murals, and the Return to the Bickford Theatre



Smithsonian Spark!Lab

Free Timed Tickets with Museum Admission

Invent a vehicle, play with the wind tunnel, and create a soundscape! Bring your young inventor (ages 5-12 years old) to the brand new Spark!Lab at the Morris Museum. Young inventors will have a chance to experience this dynamic space that offers a new informal approach to hands-on learning.

Spark!Lab at the Morris Museum is made possible by leadership support from BASF. Generous support is also made possible by Gay H. Osborn on behalf of the Blanche and George Jones Fund, Inc.
