We Did It!

When a community, hard work and a purpose come together, magic can happen.

That’s exactly what happened on November 20, 2015, when we opened the bigger and better, brand-spanking new, expanded Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus. We started this journey several years ago, with a dream to bring kid-powered learning and an exceptional museum experience to the Denver community in a whole new way. With our new exhibits Altitude, The Art Studio, Energy, Joy Park, The Teaching Kitchen and Water, we can carry out our mission to create extraordinary experiences that champion the wonder and joy of childhood. As momentous as this occasion was, we had to celebrate! All week long, we held exclusive VIP events for our members and donors, giving them the first taste of what bigger and better really is. Check out some of the photos from our  wonderful evening events.

But the party didn’t stop there.  On November 20 we held our Grand Reopening ceremony, complete with honorary attendees, food and one BIG ribbon cutting. After some reflection of our own with a speech from CEO Mike Yankovich, we moved outside to hear from Mayor John Hickenlooper and cut the ribbon!

We have so many countless people to be grateful for. From our largest donors to our regular visitors, families, individuals, companies and more, the Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus thanks you for the overwhelming support. This could not have happened without you. THANK YOU!

The Final Stretch

If “crunch time” were a place…it would be the Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus! Exhibit features big and small are being pulled together for ourGrand Reopening on November 20, and it’s gearing up to be one exciting event!

The screens for the Community Tree were installed, where guests can smile and snap photos of themselves and watch as their faces display on the “leaves” of the grand digital tree in the lobby. Construction and exhibit team members — and even Children’s Museum CEO, Mike Yankovich– tested out the photo features with some goofy expressions.

That’s not the only fun thing happening around here. Check out the photos below to see more expansion elements coming to life!
