Location: Austin, Texas
Size: 16,000 Square Feet of Exhibits
Scope: Master Planning, Exhibit Design, and Graphic Design
Gyroscope was hired as master planners and exhibit designers for the major expansion and relocation of the Austin Children’s Museum - renamed as The Thinkery. The Museum moved to a brand new facility housing 16,000 square feet of original exhibits as well as an outdoor EnviroGarden with a custom climbing structure and other learning experiences. Gyroscope began a relationship with the Museum in 2006 working with the Board and senior staff to create new mission and vision statements.
With the new vision, we then developed an original visitor experience concept, SEEDS and SPARKS, that positions the Museum as an incubator for Austin’s next generation of scientists, artists, and innovators- STEAM.
