Express Yourself

Express Yourself

Express Yourself introduces guests to science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) by providing hands-on activities designed to encourage exploration. 

  • Rhythm and Moves encourages performance arts with a stage, dance studio, jukebox, recording studio, and music-making room for guests to discover and hone their talents.
  • The WonderBox gallery is MCM’s state-of-the-art makerspace designed for visitors of all ages, where visitors are able to explore various types of making. Hands-on experiences are essential for making and tinkering, so our visitors have access to a 3-D printer and pens, robotics, circuitry, building activities, crafting materials, and so much more! WonderBox features three exhibits to enhance the visitor experience, including a full-sized LiteBrite! Another component of WonderBox is the display cases featuring amazing stories from the state of Mississippi. Mississippi has a rich history of innovators, tinkerers, and creators. Some of those incredible people are highlighted within the WonderBox displays. Learn more about WonderBox.
