Helena features some great museums and theatres as well as other cultural and sporting events. We’re working with organizations statewide, to bring local offers on cultural events to AARP members and their guests throughout 2019.
ExplorationWorks is a science museum in Helena that offers hands-on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) exhibits, programs, workshops, classes, and camps for kids and families, as well as school and community groups.
From its beginning, ExplorationWorks has been a nonprofit, volunteer-driven, collaborative and grassroots effort. Since opening its doors in 2007, it has become a destination for local community members and tourists from across the country, and beyond. The 13,000 square foot facility houses three levels of exhibit, classroom and community space, a fabrication shop, and administrative space.

When the old Lewis and Clark County Jail, built in 1894, closed in 1985, the entire Helena community helped transform the historic granite jailhouse into a vibrant arts center. They named the new center after actress Myrna Loy, who grew up in Helena.
Today The Myrna Loy Center is known nationwide as one of the most remarkable small arts organizations in the rural West. The center provides arts education experiences to thousands of students each year; hosts special community recitals and workshops; provides grants to working Montana artists; celebrates and supports Montana filmmakers, artists, musicians, and performers; and presents world-class performances that otherwise might not be seen outside a major metropolitan area. The center also shows first-run films each night—many of them Oscar and Golden Globe winners.
WHAT: AARP members and guests get a $10 discount off an annual membership normally priced at $60. In addition to supporting the local non-profit performing arts center, members will receive two of the Center’s ever-popular free popcorn tickets.
