Explore Science, Space and Beyond!
One of the most exciting favorite Wisconsin Dells Attractions reborn in 2018; all day, every day, the Tommy Bartlett Exploratory is the place to be for hands-on family fun. Filled with more than 175 interactive activities, it is sure to boggle your brain. Whether you’ve visited before or are planning your first adventure, you won’t want to miss our new building with updated exhibits! Formerly named Robot World, this Wisconsin Dells indoor attraction is also the only place on Earth where you can see, feel and experience an authentic Russian Space Station MIR core module. Test your strength on our Giant Lever as you lift a 5000-lb. car off the ground! Out of all the wonderful things to do in Wisconsin Dells, anything Tommy Bartlett is a must. Enter the Exploratory and get lost in the wonders of science, technology, space and fun!
Plan to stay from one and one-half to two hours and enjoy all that the Tommy Bartlett Exploratory has to offer! You can find us at the same address as always, just a few feet to the north of our previous building.
“We've been here a few times and it's always lots of fun and very educational. We spent 3 hours there, but could easily double that. The kids love the experiments. It's all hands on and all self guided so you can spend as much time as you want with each exhibit. As the adult in the group I was never bored either. I would recommend this place to any family with kids and even to adults without kids."- Rob_and_kids
“Took our 4 year old and 25 year old there. They both enjoyed it and our 4 year old decided it was the best thing that we had done on our vacation. We spent about 3 hours there and pretty much did and touched everything. I would recommend it for any age and def for a family. –"- Kclineff
“What's great about Tommy Bartlett Exploratory is that kids are learning but they don't realize it, because they are having so much fun! "- Tammy1229
