Really make a splash at CMOM! When the weather turns warm, our City Splash exhibit encourages children of all ages to explore and learn more about our environment and the unique properties of water in a fun, hands-on setting.

Launch boats down a winding stream. Don’t miss the puddle patch, where you can investigate tubs filled with water to learn which objects float and which ones sink. Learn about evaporation as you paint with water on slate. Experiment with sand to create rivers and lakes at our new Erosion Table. Regardless of what you choose to do, you're in for a day of wet and wonderful fun and learning at City Splash!
