The Paso Robles Children’s Museum has installed their newest exhibit called "The Magnetic Wall".

This new STEM based exhibit, sponsored by JUSTIN Community Grants, provides an engaging engineering activity to challenge inventors young and old.

The Magnetic Wall consists of a large steel wall with an assortment of pipes, elbows, tees and other gadgets that can be arranged to create pathways for the colorful balls to travel. 

The durable plastic components, with magnets permanently
embedded, are easily arranged and rearranged on the wall.

"This exhibit is an exciting addition to the Museum and we are so lucky to be able to provide the children with this unique interactive experience" says Jennifer Smith, Executive director of the Children’s Museum.

Smith goes on to say, "new exhibits are sometimes cost prohibitive for small museums like ours and we can’t thank JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery enough for donating the funds necessary to build and install this really fun Magnetic Wall".

The Children’s Museum at the Paso Robles Volunteer Firehouse is a non-profit organization that serves families in the general public.

The Museum is located at 623 13th St. in the heart of downtown Paso Robles.

The Museum is closed Mondays and Tuesdays. It opens at 10 a.m. Wednesday and Saturday and opens at 11 a.m. Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
