Exhibits at the DoSeum

Before you step foot in the DoSeum, download the Scavenger Hunt from the DoSeum site. You and your little one will check off all that you see, hear, and touch as you explore each exhibit.

Stop at the Little Town exhibit that features kiddie-sized businesses for your child to role-play adulthood.

If your child’s a fan of sounds and light, they’ll love playing DJ or bouncing lasers off mirrors at the Sensation Studios exhibition. Even more, there’s a playground of words for kids to build characters and write their own stories. The Imagine It! exhibition was built to spark a love of reading and writing in the next generation.

Their new summer exhibition, Earth Matters, is open until September 5th, 2022. It’s an immersive environmental exhibit that teaches about climate change and carbon emissions and their impact on the earth’s biodiversity.
