Welcome to the first installment of an ongoing discussion that’s sure to be exciting: updating all of our dedicated blog readers on the progress of our new Museum! We’ll use these posts as an opportunity to share behind-the-scenes moments and hot-off-the-press announcements about our new building. Stick with us – it’ll be fun!
As you know, the Fort Collins Museum & Discovery Science Center came from the partnership of two leading Fort Collins institutions. We entered into a public/private partnership to build a new museum, one that combines hands-on science and the culture and history of our region.
Our goal is quickly becoming a reality. We are knee-deep in our exhibit planning process with Gyroscope, Inc., and have been rigorously working with our recently-selected building Design/Build Team of Hensel Phelps Construction Company and OZ Architecture.
Now to the big news: we are set to break ground on our brand-spankin’ new facility this coming summer. Yes, you read that right: this summer! As our plans progress, we’ll be sure to keep you updated on the details.
