HELENA — ExplorationWorks will debut their new exhibit at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday Feb. 1, and the new theme doesn’t miss a beat.

Crews were hard at work Friday assembling the new displays and features for “Sound Science.”

The new exhibit allows families to explore the science of sound with a soundproof chamber that can measure how loud you can scream, a “speed of sound” experiment tube, musical instruments and much more.

Sound Science was created by ExplorationWorks staff, and Exhibits Manager Matt Jetty said they’ve had a blast putting it together.

“Some of this stuff we’ve had a little while, there’s some new stuff and all new construction,” said Jetty. “It’s always fun to build something from scratch here at ExplorationWorks. Hopefully if it does well and it can travel to the other local museums.

While the exhibit is on display, the museum will feature Sunday SoundLabs each week from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. featuring local musicians.

Registration for Summer Camps also opens on Feb. 1 for current members. General registration opens on February 15th.
