Location: El Paso, Texas
Size: 40,000 Square Feet of Exhibits
Scope: Master Planning and Exhibit Design
The El Paso Children's Museum, located in the thriving, multi-cultural Borderplex, is in a unique position to lead the museum field in access and inclusion by building bridges to different cultures, languages, abilities and ages. The emerging S.T.E.A.M based museum will promote innovation, creativity, and career development through local/global connections, dreaming big and the belief that anything is possible. The blue sky that connects all of us around the world was the inspiration that came directly from the El Paso community for Gyroscope's exhibit designs.
The new museum is comprised of nine themed zones, each with a diverse mix of experiences to appeal to different types of learners, audiences, and ages. Each zone includes areas for very young children as well as quiet places for families with special needs. Gyroscope is collaborating with many local organizations to develop the visitor experiences that focus on local/global connections, cross-border experiences and the unifying principle that the sky connects us all. The entire museum will be bilingual and will include an RFID-based system for personalized media that can be customized by each visitor.
