Outside of New Building

New Location

For a year and a half, we searched for a larger property in downtown State College. The State College Borough and all who live in it have been so kind to us over the years, and we loved getting to know the families who are able to walk to the museum from home or while running errands.

Once we exhausted options downtown, we expanded the search. Last winter, we settled on 1224 N Atherton St as the best option for staying close to downtown but providing the parking that so many visitors request. We will spend one last summer in downtown State College, closing our doors at the end of the day on Friday, Aug. 25.

Inside New Location

The new location nearly triples our space to 12,500 sq ft!  We will have two classrooms instead of one and three times the space for hands-on science exhibits!

We will re-open in the new location in September. Check back for progress updates!
