Exploring the Museum

Our space was designed with accessibility in mind, and we continuously make improvements based on visitor feedback.

Visitor Maps


Kiewit Luminarium spans 82,000 square feet across two floors and offers more than 125 interactive exhibits. For additional information, see the two maps below which are available on request at our Welcome Desk:



Elevators are available providing access between the two floors.


Food and Beverage


You are welcome to bring food and beverages. We ask that you eat in the Lounge on the second floor and do not play with exhibits when eating or drinking. Because guests are able to bring their own food, we are not a nut-free facility.

If you would like to host a larger event or provide catered meals during your visit, you are required to contact our Events team at [email protected] prior to your visit. 

Fig. is our onsite restaurant partner and offers freshly made sandwiches, salads, a full coffee bar, and other dining options. We kindly request that you do not bring your own food and beverages into Fig. For more information, visit Fig.’s website or call 531-999-1284.



Lockers are located next to our Welcome Desk on the south side of our building. You are welcome to use them for free on a first-come, first-served basis.



Luminators are young adults who serve as fixed-term staff to assist guests and provide programming experiences. They are easily identifiable by their blue vests.

To learn more about the program, visit our Luminator Program page.

Mothers Room


The Mothers Room is located in the northwest corner on the second floor. The space includes a mini fridge and a sink. 

While breastfeeding and nursing are welcome throughout the building, the Mothers Room offers a private space for those who prefer it. Guests are also invited to use this room if they need a quiet space.




All restrooms are wheelchair accessible and include automatic flushing toilets and youth changing tables. Tampons and pads are free and available in all women’s and family restrooms.

Women’s and men’s restrooms are located on each floor on the north and south sides of the building. These restrooms have automatic hand dryers. 

Private, single-stall family restrooms are available on each floor on the south side of the building. For individuals with sensory sensitivities, please note that the family restrooms do not have automatic hand dryers.


Seating and Break Areas


Seating areas are available on the first floor at the Catch Waves gallery entrance and on the second floor at the Find Yourself and Make It Count galleries and in the Lounge. Benches are located throughout the museum, near the stairwells, and along the second-floor walkway.

To reference these areas, see the Visitor Maps section.


Strollers and Wagons


Strollers and wagons are welcome, but please be aware that we do not offer storage space for them.

Water Fountains and Refill Stations


Water fountains and refill stations are available by the restrooms on each floor on the north and south sides of the building.

Wheelchair Accessibility


Our building meets ADA Guidelines and features automatic doors triggered by touchless wave sensors. Circulation routes throughout our space provide sufficient space for individuals using wheelchairs. 

Restrooms are designed for wheelchair accessibility, and approximately 75% of tabletop exhibits are generally accessible from the front for individuals in wheelchairs (depending on the size of the chair).

We also offer a limited number of standard adult-sized manual wheelchairs. Wheelchairs are available to guests to borrow for free on a first-come, first-served basis. If you or anyone in your group would like to borrow a wheelchair, please ask staff at our Welcome Desk.
