Come one, come all, and explore Curiosity Carnival—a summer full of exhibits and activities designed to help you delve into the science, technology, engineering, art, math, and history of carnival games.
Get ready to try your hand at your favorite carnival games while exploring probability, physics, motor skills, and other surprising concepts. They’re rarely as easy as they seem! Curiosity Carnival will challenge you to experience the thrill of victory and learn why these games are so intriguing.
In a addition to the Curiosity Carnival exhibition, visit Spark!Lab Smithsonian to explore the history of the American carnival. Check out The Shop where you can design and build your own carnival games. And in Art Alcove, you can create you own carnival-inspired works of art.
Good news! The Curiosity Carnival exhibition has been extended through October 7, 2018!
