Kidpower! A Science Playground
Kidpower! is an interactive science playground constructed on the site of the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs. As a 40,000 square-foot exterior playground, it features slides, ramps and stairs to link the public plaza of the renovated 1964 World’s Fair pavilion with the entrance, cafeteria and shop. Trees, grass hills, paving and playscape provide the museum with vital outdoor relaxation and activity space.
