Exploratorium Network for Exhibit-based Teaching (ExNET) is an educational program combining exhibits, professional development, and partnership with museums in the U.S., Mexico, and Europe. Our mutual goal is to inspire curiosity and learning with innovative exhibits, programs, and environments.

Drawing from over 1000 exhibits built at the Exploratorium since 1969, we reproduce and customize exhibits for sale to museums, schools, and businesses around the world.

The Exploratorium offers traveling versions of some of its most popular exhibitions. Available for 3-month rental terms, these exhibitions will help draw new audiences to yourorganization.

In addition to manufacturing exhibits, we offer a broad range of design, management, and consulting services, which can be tailored to individual project requirements.
  In the interest of fulfilling our mission of fostering a culture of learning, and in the desire to "go beyond the walls" of the Exploratorium, Exhibit Services reaches out to the world with exhibits and teaching programs. Working in collaborations with museums from Fort Worth and San Diego, to Paris, France, and Valencia, Spain, our partnerships are furthering our mission, helping people nurture their curiosity about the world around them— nationwide and worldwide.


The MEMORY exhibition approaches the subject from biological, cognitive, personal, and cultural perspectives.

The central idea of the exhibition is: We continually relive and reshape past experience, which in turn shapes the way we perceive and understand the world and ourselves.

The exhibition’s 38 exhibit elements are organized in eight sections — The Senses, Remembering What’s Meaningful, Forgetting, Faces, Remembering Without Thinking, The Brain, Personal Memory, Shared Memories.

Tour of the Memory exhibition is made possible by funding from the National Science Foundation and MetLife Foundation.
