The Science Museum of Minnesota (SMM) offers a complete menu of services to science, natural history, and children’s museums; cultural institutions; visitor centers; and other non-profit organizations that need help planning, developing, designing, and building exhibits. Unlike other design/build firms, SMM is a museum as well as a provider of exhibit services. We face the same issues our partners do as we create experiences that educate, entertain, and engage visitors. We want to foster deep and lasting relationships between institutions and their patrons. Our success stems from our high standards for quality in all aspects of our work, our commitment to collaboration, and our focus on visitors as our ultimate clients.

SMM also offers high-quality traveling exhibitions that combine our exhibit design, installation, and maintenance expertise into a convenient service package. Our experience and commitment to quality will ensure a successful experience for your visitors and your institution.

  • We have a two brand new traveling exhibits available:

    Nature All Around Us
    This is a brand new 5,000 sq ft exhibit opening at the Science Museum of Minnesota in October and available in February 2023. It's filled with immersive environments and hands-on interactives and challenges the notion that urban and natural environments are separate or at odds by showing the many ways they are inextricably linked and encouraging further curiosity and learning about planning, designing and managing to nurture nature in our own communities. A wonderful topic for promoting the importance of protecting our environment and the health benefits from connecting with nature. Sign up for our first spot and receive some SMM swag!

    Skin: Living Armor, Evolving Identity
    This 5,000 sq ft is currently at the Science Museum of Virginia. 
    The exhibit aims to
    inspire wonder and curiosity about this uniquely complex organ, illustrate the incredibly adaptive properties of skin across all organisms, and spark dialogue and reflection about skin’s role in
    shaping human culture and identity. Visitors will explore
     dozens of scientific specimens that showcase the incredibly adaptive properties of skin in animals—including its ability to support and regenerate keratin-based structures like armored scales, aerodynamic feathers, and insulating fur. Skin dives deeper to present the topics of racism, prejudice, and discrimination through the lenses of history and science. Available February 2023!
