Jacksonville is and has been home to many creative people. The thinkers, makers and do-it-yourselfers who live here are essential in making the city what it is today, and will help shape Jacksonville’s future for years to come. MOSH celebrates the Bold City’s spirit of innovation and artistic expression by letting YOU be a maker in the Creation Station, a space for hands-on activities and experiential learning in the sciences, technology, engineering, the arts, and math. Whether you want to make a paper airplane, a digital 3-D model of one, or anything in-between, the Creation Station is the place to get your gears turning on your next big idea!

The Creation Station is MOSH’s very first maker space. What is a maker space? A maker space is where science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics come together through different types of activities! In MOSH’s Creation Station, all the learning is done by hands-on doing. This exhibit features a daily rotation of hands-on activities such as 3D printing, paper crafting, and more. The Creation Station also features examples of inventions and tools from MOSH’s collections and information on makers from Jacksonville’s past, including songwriter Charlie “Hoss” Singleton, choreographer Frankie Manning, sculptor Augusta Savage, architect Henrietta Dozier, tech pioneer Don Estridge, boat designer Frank Huckins and Hollywood makeup artist William Tuttle. Famous musical acts from Jacksonville’s past and present are featured on MOSH Radio, bringing this maker space to life with the sounds of the city.

Maker Workshops:

Maker Workshops are specialized learning experiences that dive deeper into how to do something awesome, like making paper or building a dancing robot.

Workshops are $5 per person in addition to regular museum admission, unless otherwise noted.

Workshops are 30-40 minutes in length and are led by a MOSH Educator or Guest Maker.
