We have made the difficult decision to extend our temporary closure until further notice. The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers remains our top priority. We look forward to opening the museum's doors and seeing you again soon. Until then, since you can't come to us, we'll come to you with Museum at Home.
This exhibit is currently touring! See the schedule below for its current location.
About the Exhibit
Builders of all ages are invited to explore, build and play in the traveling exhibition—Castle Builder! In this exhibit kids and their families are transported to a fanciful kingdom where they too can become castle builders, building their own toy castle brick by brick.

Explore a Giant Castle - Explore the inside of the royal castle full of decorations and the king and queen’s thrones.
Aim a Catapult – Build a fortress wall on screen and test its strength with a virtual catapult.
