Weekday Admission Tickets


Interactive experiences that help kids foster their creativity with innovation and fun.

Tens of thousands of people from all over the world have visited and fallen in love with Genius Gems: a Magnetic Experience, featuring the world's largest collection of magnetic tiles - over 100,000 of them! Design your own creation or be inspired by one of our design challenges - we'll award you tokens and you can exchange them for prizes!

At Genius Gems, you can expect magnetic tile building, featuring our gorgeous Glitter Tiles and Candy Tiles, marble shoots, robot stations featuring Ozobots®, and more! At our Design Bar, you can make your own Glitter Tile, and we also offer slime for an additional cost.

With Genius Gems, you can expect hands-on creativity, interacting with peers, critical thinking, and having fun. That is why people come to Genius Gems--and it's why they come back again and again.

For our peak hours (weekdays after school hours, weekdays, and holidays) our general admission experience is recommended for children ages 4 and up. Every person visiting Genius Gems is expected to follow our rules, including no knocking down projects (even your own). Families that do not follow this rule may be asked to leave. Thank you for helping to keep our space enjoyable for all guests.

Please book a time slot below. Every person needs a ticket (adults and children). Online reservations are required.

If you are having any difficulty booking, please email us at information@geniusgems.com. 

Tickets at non-peak hours are now being offered at a lower price! Tickets for weekdays before 3PM will start at $19.99 per person. These tickets will not be available during holidays or during other peak hours.
