About Us | Climbing Higher Campaign


Our Climbing Higher capital campaign will raise $3.9 million
to build two unique and unparalleled additions
to the Museum of Life and Science:

Hideaway Woods 
and Earth Moves.



At the Museum of Life and Science, we want to immerse children in a natural learning environment that stimulates their senses, strengthens their bodies and expands their minds. Help us create two spectacular learning environments that allow children and families to interact with the science and wonder of nature in new and amazing ways.


Hideaway Woods is a two-acre nature-based playscape, built inside our existing train loop and accessed by a pedestrian tunnel. It will engage children in healthy movement, exploration and skill development. The current Museum playground will become a gathering spot between the Museum building and our outdoor adventures and provide space for a new classroom. The experience will open summer 2015.

Earth Moves is an innovative exploration of Earth sciences and systems that will be situated near the existing Catch the Wind exhibit. Visitors will control and witness powerful natural forces including erosion, moving water, and more. Earth Moves will open in 2017.
