Rasberry-Powers Children's Gallery

Due to Power of Play – The Children’s Museum at Sci-Port (POP) construction, children’s gallery exhibits have been relocated to the first and second floor. Some exhibits will not be available during construction.
We apologize for the inconvenience as we prepare for big changes for our smallest visitors.

POP opens Monday, November 21 at 8 a.m. Members can enjoy a members-only preview November 19-20.


There's something for everyone, even toddlers, at Sci-Port. Our Rasberry-Powers Children's Gallery and construction-themed Kids@Work area provide a safe, semi-enclosed area for toddlers. This area is currently being expanded and refurbished into Power of Play, known as POP, the new children's museum at Sci-Port. POP will feature hands-on activities for children ages birth through 8. During construction, many of the children's gallery exhibits will be reloacted throughout the center. Our smallest scientists will still have a place to play until POP finishes construction November 2016. 

Now you can check out our new permanent exhibit within the Children's Gallery:
Smile Science! 
Sponsored by Cosse & Silmon Orthodontics and Pediatric Dental Partners
Smile Science!
 includes a giant six foot mouth that teaches Sci-Port visitors about oral anatomy in an informal, fun way. Visitors can brush the teeth with an oversized toothbrush and remove and replace the teeth like a puzzle. When the teeth are repositioned into their proper place, a touch sensor enables videos to play that teach visitors about dental hygiene.

The exhibit also encompasses two interactive tabletop features that allow visitors to use a microscope to examine tooth decay and learn about orthodontics by examining how braces work. Visitors will also have the opportunity to engage in role play, as the dentist, orthodontist or the patient in the replicated office.
