We’re making great progress on construction on new major exhibits and Museum improvements – and we’re so excited to share another sneak peek into the progress!
Check out the progress Lewis Contractors have made since our last construction update by watching our quick time lapse!


In the video, you can watch as the new exhibits come to life as Lewis Contractors have been hard at work since January constructing both the massive, four-story SkyClimber and The Port exhibit!

Check out how tall the SkyClimber steel structure is officially in position! Little learners will learn to take risks, enhance hand-eye coordination and more as they climb from the bottom of Port Discovery all the way to the top of the SkyClimber seen in the video.

Plus, if you watch closely towards the middle of the above video, you can watch the beginning of the Port exhibit’s blue, fully operating gantry crane and massive ship hull beginning to be constructed!


Stay tuned for updates and sneak peeks over the next month on our website, on social media (follow us on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter!), and email – and be sure to check out the many ways to play and learn while construction is underway!

While we’re under construction…
