We are hands-on! EUREKA! McConnell Science Museum is filled with interactive displays and exhibits that cover many science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) topics. Students can tweak, push, pull, drive, spin and more, all in an effort to better understand the world in which we live.
Our policy is that children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult when visiting EUREKA!. If you don't have time to visit our space with your child, sign him or her up for a camp! They're a blast.
EUREKA! is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was founded in 1999 by John McConnell. We operate with a small staff and large group of dedicated volunteers. As an independent organization, we are close partners with Colorado Mesa University, Mesa County Valley School District 51, and other local nonprofits in our community.
