Mission Statement:

ExplorationWorks, a museum of science and culture, invites all people to active experiences that inspire inquiry, increase understanding and stimulate the desire for lifelong learning.

Around the world, interactive museums, science centers and children's museums provide exciting approaches to education. At the new ExplorationWorks interactive musem, exhibits, programs, workshops, classes, and camps are available for kids, youths, families, seniors/elders, as well as school and community groups. ExplorationWorks helps meet community needs as an important partner with formal education, as a setting for informal learning, a place where families learn together, and as a catalyst and venue for community involvement in education for people from all ages, interests, and walks of life. Through early CommunityWorks “Museum Without Walls” programming and community-based center planning, strong partnerships developed with the City of Helena, Carroll College, Helena Public Schools, and others local and statewide organizations. Through collaborations with organizations that reach and serve at-risk and low-income populations our goal is to provide a center that is accessible, welcoming and inclusive of all people from varying social and economic backgrounds and experiences. Scholarship entry fees, memberships and program tuitions are always available.
