So Exciting! A Peek at My Day Job

It's finally being installed! I plan museum exhibits for a living, but this is the first time I've researched and written an entire museum! It's an interactive discovery museum for kids in one of our Texas state parks. Ok, so it's only about 450 square feet inside this building, but hey, I packed a lot of stuff in there! You wouldn't believe how much work it is to plan an entire museum. It took a year!

This is the front of the building starting to be installed. There's a kid's crawl through tree entrance on the left and a book of animal track riddle answers going on that tiny standing tree. There will be 3ft wide low concrete markers on the ground all over the park with animal tracks embedded and a riddle. They have to come to the Discovery Center to find the answer.

Here's the start of the inside walls. It's a river-centered park, so it starts out in the woodland and swooshes into the river. There will be interactive components installed along these walls.

Exciting! I visit again next Thursday when there will be much more stuff to share.
Hugs <3 Wendy
