Mozi Flow Ring - The Mozi Flow Ring is like a slinky for your arm! Watch as it spins continuously and effortlessly from one arm to another in a rhythm you create.

Currently, the museum has a one-of-a-kind, teacher-created holiday scavenger hunt that kids can participate in. Kids can choose between two age-based scavenger hunt options with varying difficulties. Younger kids will search and find festive decals throughout the immersive, mind-bending rooms, while older explorers will decipher various riddles to find their way through the museum to the decals. Both options end with a special treat and encourage kids to have fun while learning! There is no age limit but the museum recommends that the scavenger hunt will appeal to children up to 12 years of age. Kids can participate in the scavenger hunt through December 31, 2022.
