Tickets On Sale For Grand Opening Of Thinkery

Updated: Monday, November 18 2013, 09:11 AM CST

Austin's brand new children's science museum, the Thinkery, is less than a month away from its' grand opening. November 18th tickets go on sale for opening weekend, December 7-8. Tickets are free, but you must go to to reserve your spot.

The Thinkery's new location in the Mueller Shopping Center has doubled the square footage of the museum's previous location in Downtown Austin.

Ahead of the opening, KEYE was lucky to get a behind the scenes look at the interactive exhibits. There's a Light Lab complete with a giant Lite-Bright station, Innovators Workshop where you can work with magnetic blocks and other building materials, a Spark Shop where you can make your own airplane and launch it or melt cool designs with a wax machine, Our Backyard which is a giant jungle gym, Currents where you can learn about the science of water, Let's Grow where you can hit up the farmer's market or get active with a hula-hoop and last but not least the Kitchen lab for food and science experiments.

Within each exhibit there's a ton of hands on activities worth exploring that will no doubt keep your kiddos entertained for hours.

For a limited time only, an annual membership for a family of four costs $75 and comes with free admission, 10% discount on birthday parties, inivitations to member only hours and exhibit previews and early registration for camps.
