EXPANSIONS TO INSPIRE INNOVATION
The Bakken Museum is a nationally recognized STEM education center and science museum inspiring a passion for innovation in science, technology, and humanities. MBJ provided structural engineering services for two expansion projects. The first expansion in 1998 doubled the size of the museum, and included classrooms, exhibit spaces, and a climate-controlled artifact vault. In 2020, the museum further expanded with a new entrance, an elevated outdoor walkway, along with interior renovations to the lobby, classrooms, makerspace, and exhibit spaces.
