Get excited about invention in Possible-opolis!

This sprawling “city” is filled with challenging puzzles, interactive games, and loads of exploration and play. Composed of 90% recycled and repurposed materials.

  • Build a mini Madison.
  • Use pulleys and a harness to ‘mooove’ Gertrude the Cow.
  • Push buttons and turn dials on the Wayback Machine to unearth surprises.
  • Run in the giant Gerbil Wheel.
  • Scale the two-story Hodge Podge Mahal climber.

A section of Possible-opolis is about to undergo a major change! Starting May 15, our exhibits team will close the point area of the 2nd floor (outlined in orange on the image below) to begin installation of a new exhibit about the life and ideas of Frank Lloyd Wright. The new exhibit, From Coops to Cathedrals, will be an immersive, hands-on experience that will encourage children to tinker, innovate, and explore architecture and nature. The opening will celebrate the 150th birthday of Frank Lloyd Wright in June. Now is the time to visit your child’s favorite area on the point and say “see you later!”


This outlined area shows where the new Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit will be located.
