Raven Hill Discovery Center was selected as a host site for the newest Smithsonian Museum’s national traveling exhibit, “Spark! Places of Innovation” from August 26 – October 7, 2023.
Inspired by an exhibition by the National Museum of American History, the exhibit features stories gathered from diverse communities across the nation. Photographs, engaging interactives, objects, videos, and augmented reality bring a multilayered experience to reveal the leaders, challenges, successes, and future of innovation in each town.
The Smithsonian exhibit is free to everyone. Visitors can enjoy the rest of Raven Hill Discovery Center with an entrance fee of $10, which includes a special viewing of their newest exploratory section on “Innovation or Invention?” In this section, you’ll get inspiration for bringing inventions to life by learning about what goes on inside a patent office.
