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 will be MCM’s state-of-the-art makerspace designed for visitors of all ages. Visitors will be able to explore various types of making. Hands-on experiences are essential for making and tinkering, so our visitors will have access to a 3-D printer and pens, robotics, circuitry, building activities, crafting materials, and so much more! WonderBox will feature three exhibits to enhance the visitor experience, including a full-sized LiteBrite! Another component of WonderBox will be 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 will be highlighted within the WonderBox displays.
- WonderBox at MCM, which was funded by Entergy, the Institute of Museum and Library Services for America grant, and a Hearst Foundations grant, will open in Summer 2021.
