The Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center has been a center of science learning and family fun for over 30 years. Voted one of Alabama’s top attractions several years in a row, it remains a unique destination for school groups and families alike! From the young to the young at heart, the Exploreum has something for all ages. Home to several permanent, and ever evolving galleries, there is always something new to experience. From hands on science education and entertainment, to educator lead experiments and demonstrations, we have perfected the art of making science fun and memorable! Adding to the experience are world class traveling exhibits, our dedicated demo spaces, and exciting special events all year round. We also have our very own cafe where you can relax and grab a bite to eat as well a unique gift shop to grab that perfect souvenir or gift for friends and family!
Planning for Health and Safety Measures
It is always our policy to encourage regular hand-washing, good hygiene, and awareness, which are the center of the CDC’s guidance. When we open in June, increased health and safety measures will be in place to continue to protect our visitors and staff:
- Daily temperature checks and masks for all Exploreum staff
- Plastic balls have been removed from the Wharf of Wonder
- Climbing Castle is temporarily closed to keep the area as clean as possible.
- Hand sanitizing stations available throughout the building
- Frequent exhibit and restroom disinfecting
