The permanent exhibits at the Science Spectrum cater to all facets of humanity’s natural inclinations toward exploration and learning. We have three floors of permenant exhibits, experiments and displays, that have been a part of the Science Spectrum culture for years. Let’s go exploring!
GROUND LEVEL EXHIBITS
Physical Science Exhibits
Levers, pulleys, gears, momentum, electrical circuits, and other basic science principles are explored. This exhibit is a fun way to have a greater understanding of physics.
Lubbock Children’s Museum
The Lubbock Children’s Museum was introduced in 2012 to the Science Spectrum, and this interactive little world is specifically designed for ages 5 and under. With a supermarket, vet clinic, road system, and many physical and sensory play areas, the Lubbock Children’s Museum is a unique space for your little explorer!
From electricity and chemistry shows, to space programs, this theater style venue is a stop for one of the education staff’s daily live science demonstrations.
