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.
Childhood should be a wonderful journey, and the Children's Museum of the East End helps make the trip even better with a discovery-themed approach to the familiar and the unknown, the real and the imagined, and environments both natural and urban. Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership provided complete architecture and exhibit design services for the Long Island museum.
This exhibit is an educational collaboration between SEGD and AIGA, inviting visitors to experience dimensions of communications and information, wayfinding and signs, identity and environments, and interpretive exhibits and retail.
Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership (New York), selected from a shortlist of international teams, has been working with the America for Bulgaria Foundation and the Muzeiko staff in the development and design of Bulgaria's first children's museum and the first for eastern Europe.
