Global collaborations projects

World renowned as a premier interactive museum exploring science, art, and human perception, the Exploratorium is a twenty-first century learning laboratory that produces phenomenal teaching tools, interactive exhibits, and innovative programs. Through Exploratorium Global Collaborations, which launched in 2012, our work as a collaborative R&D institution has expanded to help myriad organizations further their own unique goals, reach, and impact.

Global Collaborations projects are true partnerships. Working together with like-minded people, we use inquiry as a tool to ignite curiosity, empower learners, and inspire individuals on a broad scale to build a more reflective, critical, and empathetic world. Our partners and co-creators around the world include local and national governments, universities, museums, libraries, hospitals, corporations, and foundations. Our philosophy is that the local expertise and resources of our partners' communities must be meaningfully engaged as we work together to realize their visions.   

Projects range from master planning to professional development to exhibition design, development, and fabrication. Learn more about some of our recent projects below, or see who we've partnered with around the world.
