On March 13th, 2020 The Exploration Place Museum & Science Centre closed to the public due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) until further notice.

We appreciate everyone's patience, understanding, and support as we all work our way through this difficult time.  Most of our team is working from home and taking the opportunity to connect online through our social media channels and we have now offered curbside pick up for our gift shop.  Take care of yourself and we look forward to when we can safely open our doors again and see everyone.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding our operation during this temporary closure at info@theexplorationplace.com 

Please allow 1-2 business days for us to get back to you.   We look forward to when we can safely open our doors again and see everyone.
