The Creation Station is a new kind of exhibit; one where all the learning comes from doing. This all-ages exhibit features a daily rotation of hands-on Activities — one day you could be tinkering with building sets, and the next you’re immersed in the ancient Japanese art of paper-folding! For those more complicated projects, we offer educator-led Workshops weekly.

Jacksonville is and has been home to many creative people! Become a part of our city’s artistic expression and innovative spirit by being a maker in the Creation Station: a space for hands-on activities and experiential learning in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics). Whether you want to make a paper airplane, a digital 3-D model of one, or anything in-between, this is is the place to get the gears turning on your next big idea!

 

Creation Station Hours:

Open daily to the public Monday – Sunday*

*Closed to the public for Workshops every Friday and Saturday 12:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.
