Learn and play whether you’re a child by age or at heart
The MOXI Museum, or Museum of Exploration and Innovation, is a place for children of all ages to explore over 17,000 square feet of exciting ways to learn, is set to open by the end of 2016. There are endless possibilities for learning about science, engineering, arts, math and innovation in fun new ways, including eight different themed exhibits, a roof top garden (called The Sky Garden), media theatre, and a smart classroom. CasaSB.com says the exhibits will offer learning opportunities extending “from pre-k to grey.” As Santa Barbara’s first children’s museum of this size and potential, MOXI will benefit the community by providing children of all ages a place to learn and grow.
“…if we don’t get started we are just going be a consumeristic country.”
The donors for the project were recently given a sneak peak into what the museum will hold. Dick Wolf, author and creator of Law & Order, has been one of the main supporters for the opening of the museum. Wolf’s passion for the future generations of Santa Barbara and beyond is welcomed as stated in an interview with KEYT; “this is a very sophisticated space that pushes this part of the city into the future. This country is in the toilets scientifically.. and if we don’t get started we are just going be a consumeristic country.” Santa Barbara is in for tons of opportunities for our youth, including talks about after school programs and partnerships with local organizations like Storytellers, Girls Inc., and Boys and Girls Club. Get ready for over 90,000 visitors per year to pour into the museum, leaving with the potential to go forth and utilize their new found passions for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.
