Offering something new around every corner, more than 20 permanent exhibits, focused on science, the arts, and the humanities, immerse the visitor in the experience.  Visitors can slide down the Katie Ellen Coal Mine and crawl through its tunnels, fly a real Cessna 150 airplane, dig for fossils and choose one to take home, perform exciting science experiments in the Eastman Discovery Lab, navigate a boat through the locks and downriver, and many other one-of-a-kind experiences.  These experiences encourage guests to ask “Why?” and “How?” and work together to find those answers.
