New museum update

by Jason Wolvington, Associate Director, Discovery Science Center

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.

To find out more, visit our website at  And, of course, stay connected with us through this blog, our main website, or on Facebook.  Simply search for “Fort Collins Museum & Discovery Science Center” and become a fan!
