Who doesn't love Outer Space?!
We are very excited to announce that we are opening up a BRAND NEW EXHIBIT today, Friday, October 1st, 2021. So be sure to come by the Pikes Peak Children's Museum starting tomorrow to check it out!
We were lucky enough to partner with UCCS students pre-Covid 19. However, unfortunately, Covid-19 hit right in the middle of their semester and the project took a turn. They were able to make it work so that they could complete their project. Not in the way they had hoped, but with social distancing and not as a whole group. Even with everything happening, they were able to finish the project! We have stored the exhibit in storage for some time as we were unable to do any mobile events the rest of 2020.
As you may know, even through Covid-19, we opened the doors to the first location for Pikes Peak Children's Museum in April of 2021. Although all the exhibits were put together and we loved what we had, we really were itching to make use of our Outer Space exhibit that the students worked so hard on. So we made the decision to close down the Sensory/Discovery exhibit and start our work on putting together the Outer Space exhibit we had.
We had almost everything we needed, we just had to get a few finishing touches to really bring the space all together! We are so excited to showcase this exhibit to our community. I know the kiddos who have been visiting are dying for the curtain to be removed and have access to the space!
The day is finally upon us and we can't wait to hear what you think! So in celebration of the 1st day of October, we are so excited to share this space with you. Come in FRIDAY (10/01/2021) and SATURDAY (10/02/2021) to the museum to check it out and we will give you $2 off your total admission in celebration!
When you visit us these next 2 days,
you will also get a fun Outer Space sticker for yourself and one to take to a friend who needs to come check it out! And to celebrate, we will have a fun space themed SENSORY BIN out to explore as well!
So come have fun with us these next couple days as we open up this new exhibit to the community! Hope you will love it as much as we do!
We can't wait to see what you think!
