AlegreMENTE • Until Jan 1, 2024
Celebrate loving, playful connections through dance, storytelling, and more in this bilingual English/Spanish exhibit set in a whimsical forest full of families of all kinds—both human and animal! While kids play, adults learn about how simple, everyday interactions build social-emotional, language, cognitive, and motor skills.


Dream Machine
Children are invited to make their way up the NCM’s three-story climber and then zip down a slide!

Innovation Sandbox
This immersive experience gives kids a chance to interact in real time with fun digital wall projections!

Art + Tech
The art and tech nook allows kids to touch, play, and explore STEM principles with not only new friends, but favorite characters like the Paw Patrol pups and more!

Data Science Alley
Kids won’t know they’re discovering how data points are collected and aggregated — but they’ll know something really cool going on as they send pom-poms soaring through tubes pushed by gusts of air!

Little Movers
Infants and toddlers will love this free-movement space just for them!

Engineering Games + Play
Kids will discover how engineering and play go hand-in-hand as they design, build, and send vehicles down a track, shoot a basketball, or score a home run!
