Weborn Baptist Foundation FamilyPlace Now Open
The Museum’s, new Welborn Baptist Foundation FamilyPlace is now open. Located just beyond our temporary main entrance, FamilyPlace is a Science hands-on gallery created especially for families. Children and adults alike can enjoy family favorite, interactive exhibits including our Gravity Well, Flying Magnets, Duck in Kaliedoscope and Anti-Gravity Mirror, plus over a dozen more interesting exhibits. New for 2013 is a Jacob’s Ladder exhibit donated by Local Union 16 of Evansville. This exhibit creates “Frankenstein-like” sparks that rise over three feet into the air. FamilyPlace is also the new home for our iconic, Alaskan Brown Bear and Science Demonstration Area. Demonstrations performed by our Student Explainers occur most weekend afternoons. Check with our Receptionist for demo times during your visit, or ask one of our friendly staff or volunteers when you arrive.
