A FUN AND INTERACTIVE ATTRACTION
Minnesota Children’s Museum, built in 1985, began as a four-story, 65,000-square-foot structure. After more than 30 years, the renovation and expansion in 2017 aimed to improve and update the visitor experience and establish the building as a visible fun attraction. The reimagined museum includes a transformed atrium for improved entry sequencing, ticketing and circulation as well as a new central stair and elevator to create clear access to the exhibit galleries. With 40% more gallery space, creative office spaces, and a new multi-story climbing wall, the museum now successfully accommodates the increased visitor demand and achieves their mission of “sparking learning through play”.
