The Works is a hands-on museum that makes learning about engineering, science and technology interesting, understandable, and fun.
Bring your family and enjoy unique interactive exhibits that delight visitors ages 5 to 12 and inspire interest in the way things work.
Our exhibits are grouped into three major theme areas Gears and Gizmos, Structures and Shapes, and The Interactive Image.
We're also featuring our Sensor Zone exhibit. Your mission: to detect, trick and sneak past the sensors.
This venue will accept your Museum Day Live! ticket on the screen of your smartphone.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
