WonderLab is an innovative science and technology museum situated on the courthouse square, in downtown Bloomington, Indiana. Opened to the public in 1998, the museum, through its hands-on exhibits and programs, aims to educate people of all ages - especially children - in an attempt to inculcate in them basic scientific principles and to foster an attitude for continuous learning. WonderLab features more than 25 permanent and changing hands-on exhibits in science, health, and technology as well as make-and-take activities that vary every week. Exhibits and experiments – which the visitors can test themselves – are scheduled in various thematic sections that are designed in line with Indiana academic standards. A selection of interactive science demonstrations, on a particular science topic, is part of the daily schedule. The landscaped Wondergarden, by the side of the museum building, is an ideal place to rest and relax, and is a respite from the downtown bustle. Its amphitheater hosts interesting outdoor science programs. The museum’s Resource Room is home to numerous magazines and science activity books. The museum gift store has high-quality science toys, puzzles, games, activity kits, and logo items. WonderLab is located near the Indiana University and Convention Center.
