The Cade Museum engages and inspires by captivating the minds, hearts, and hands of inventors of all ages.
We explore STEAM concepts in a unique way - highlighting cutting-edge and emerging technologies - and tracing them back to their original origins and roots of invention. Our exhibits, activities, and programs are aligned with Pillars of Science and Building Blocks of Invention, as seen through the powerful lens of innovation and entrepreneurship, to spark wonder, ignite curiosity and cultivate an inventive mindset.
Approximately every eight weeks, the museum introduces a new theme to excite and educate visitors in a different area of science, art & invention – such as Flight – with new micro-exhibits in the central Rotunda, plus flight-themed activities throughout the museum, including our Fab Lab, Creativity Lab, and Petty Family Gallery. So, please roll up your sleeves, speak with our educators, ask lots of questions, and try new experiments & experiences to engage all of your senses.
