Design, Build, Create, KEVA!

Design a skyscraper, suspension bridge or your own structure. Build it using principles of balance, cantilevers, geometric shapes, optimum proportion, stability and more. Create masterpieces with the simplicity of KEVA planks – thousands of identical, precision-cut smooth wooden blocks – all ¼ inch thick, ¾ inch long and 4 ½ inches wide. Discover hands-on fun in this new exhibit! Design, Build, Create, KEVA! is an Educational Gift from Jane and Neil Golub & Friends, September 2015.





Play Space

Now Open!
