New museum update: Two-fer

by Terry Burton, Digital Media Coordinator

We’ve got a double dip for you on this month’s installment of “New Museum Update.” First, we recently launched a whole batch of new website pages that cover some of the highlights of the new museum, including the digital dome, new classroom spaces, and the expanded Archive, among others. Check out these pages to see building schematics, exhibit designs, and architect’s renderings. These are just the beginning — we’ll have more and more to show you as we continue to create this amazing new museum.

To see the new pages, start with “About the New Museum” and then explore the buttons you’ll find on the right. If you have any comments or questions, please let us know!

Second, you may have seen on our Facebook or Flickr pages photos from our now-official construction site. On Monday June 7th the construction fence went up around the site, and since then the construction trailer has been moved in and hooked up with phones lines and electricity. Just between you and me, that construction trailer is bigger than my house! It’s niiiiice. Once everything is in place, they’ll start working on prepping the site for actual construction to begin — soon! See more photos on Flickr.

New Museum website launches

by Terry Burton, Digital Media Coordinator

We had a big day at the Fort Collins Museum & Discovery Science Center yesterday — we opened as a joint science and history experience, featuring both DSC’s best-loved hands-on interactive science exhibits and the Museum’s history exhibits (see the Coloradoan online for some great pictures and a video from yesterday). Since DSC closed at their Prospect Street location on May 30th, we’ve been working hard to create this new combined space where visitors can learn, explore, and have fun. We’re very excited about the results and hope you’ll come see us soon to experience it for yourself!

As part of our opening as a combined museum experience, we also launched our new Fort Collins Museum & Discovery Science Center website. It’s at the same address — www.fcmdsc.org — but has a whole lot more to offer, including podcasts, videos, do-at-home science activities, information for educators and researchers, ideas for planning your visit, and more. Slinky, our ball python, is even getting in on the action — he’s Twittering his “snake’s-eye view” of goings-on at the Museum. You can follow him on Twitter at SlinkyWorld.

All of this is to say there’s a lot going on at the Museum! Come visit us, whether in person or online — there’s always more to explore.
