The striking 52,000 square foot purple building, designed by Mexico City-based architect Ricardo Legorreta, signals the purpose of Children's Discovery Museum to serve the needs of children, families and schools as a center for learning and discovery.
Encompassing the broad themes of community, connections and creativity, exhibits invite self-directed, open-ended explorations, while programs provide facilitated, focused, and sustained interactions.
Since opening in June, 1990, the Museum has welcomed over 5 million visitors and has offered new interactive exhibits each year that respond to children's diverse educational needs. With the addition of the West Wing in 1997, the Museum expanded its size by twenty percent.
