The Moveable Museum of the American Museum of Natural History brings interactive education to remote locations throughout the New York City area. Inside, children travel through the Gobi Desert and into a paleontologist’s laboratory, all within the confines of a customized Winnebago. Every educational opportunity has been maximized through design. Exterior graphics include actual-size dinosaur renderings (allowing children to measure themselves against their favorite Jurassic creature). Simple interactives are combined with high-tech activities to engage varying ages and skill-levels. Fabrication materials and finishes are deployed to create varied microenvironments that trigger the child’s imagination. The Moveable Museum is a visually rich and dynamic environment, designed to ignite a child’s curiosity within the limited space of a traveling museum.
