Welcome to an interactive educational experience that will foster your child’s creativity and imagination! Designed for children ages 6 months to 10 years, exhibits reflect local themes such as water, wind, and building as well as a “farm to table” theme running from the agricultural exhibits to the market and on to the café. Exhibits are open-ended to promote free exploration and creativity.

The “PAD” in LaunchPAD stands for “Play And Discover.” When you see a child playing, you are watching a learning process. It is often stated that play is a child’s work; a child fully engrossed in play is absorbed in a joyful engagement and experimentation with the world.

LaunchPAD is a great spot for birthday parties or even consider leasing the entire museum for a family or church event!
