About the MESS Hall

Math, Engineering, Science and Stuff — that’s what we do at the Pensacola MESS Hall.

From its beginnings as a trial run in an old restaurant to its current location in downtown Pensacola, the MESS Hall has inspired curiosity in children and adults throughout our community. Visitors explore 3000 square feet of open ended exhibits plus have the opportunity to try our signature mess kits, individual experiments that engage learners in complex reasoning, trouble shooting, and many other critical skills. Additional experiences include field trips, themed programming, and camps. It’s all hands-on science.


Our Mission:

To inspire curiosity, experimentation, and creative problem solving through exploration of math, engineering, science, and stuff.

Our Vision:

The Pensacola MESS Hall aspires to attract and create a community of critical and creative thinkers of all ages who are inspired by and understand the basic principles of science.
