About The Works
There's a lot going on at The Works this month!  Build a bridge, register your child for a class, or just bring your family to visit the museum.

But whatever you do, please consider donating to The Works this holiday season.  We couldn't do what we do without your support.  See below for details.

We hope to see you soon!
Support The Works

boys with circuitsAs a friend of The Works, you're familiar with our hands-on exhibits and participatory workshops, camps, and classes.  You understand the value of learning through doing and see the benefit of our "hands-on, minds-on" science and engineering education.  But did you know that The Works depends on people like you to keep our doors open?
It's true.  While we earn about half our income through class fees and general admission, the other half must come from people like you- individuals and community leaders who believe in the power of discovery.  Before this year ends, we ask that you consider making a tax-deductible contribution to The Works.  Your support will impact many areas of The Works and will help children throughout the Twin Cities explore the wonders of science and engineering.

You can click on the button below to donate through our page.  GiveMN partners are covering all fees for online transactions so 100% of your donation will go to The Works!

Thank you for your support.  We couldn't do it without you!
