SparkLab young inventors creating

Smithsonian Spark!Lab

Spark!Lab, where everyone is an Inventor!

Spark!Lab offers any child (ages 5-12 years old and accompanied by an adult), a new informal approach to hands-on learning. Instead of following step-by-step instructions, young inventors will be empowered to problem-solve and overcome real-world obstacles. Spark!Lab offers many unique, project-specific stations, where inventors can engage directly with engineering and design challenges.

This dynamic, Smithsonian-created learning space will inspire young visitors to create, collaborate, and innovate. As New Jersey’s only Smithsonian Affiliate, the Museum is proud to launch the tenth Spark!Lab in the nation.

Timed tickets are available from noon to 4 pm at the visitor center. Timed tickets are free with Museum admission.


Spark!Lab at the Morris Museum is made possible by leadership support from BASF. 





Generous support is also made possible by Gay H. Osborn on behalf of the Blanche and George Jones Fund, Inc.
