June 2014

Kidspace Children’s Museum is renovating its 2.2 acre gardens to create a special place for young children that instills an appreciation of nature, promotes STEM education, and encourages discovery.  A grant from the Foundation will support the design, development, fabrication, and installation of a series of new interactive, child-driven outdoor exhibits.  The project is the next major milestone in the Museum’s multi-year Campaign for the Future of Kidspace, which was made public in 2012 with the opening of the Galvin Physics Forest and is aimed at creating new exhibits, improving current exhibits, enhancing the overall guest experience, and providing cutting-edge programming in informal education.  The Gardens project will expand the Museum’s capacity and attract an additional 25,000 children and families yearly beyond the 265,000 visitors served in 2013.
