13 years after AMR designed the 1996 Museum of Discovery, the facility was in need of a face-lift as well as additional space. Thanks to funding from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, the redesign, renovation and addition of the museum ws made possible. Phase I involved the relocation of staff offices and Phase II transformed the loading dock into a new street-front entrance and gift shop. Existing exhibit areas were also demolished and given complete renovations.

 

The Helix Wave, a kinetic sculpture designed by Reuben Heyday Margolin, floats above The Great Hall at the Museum of Discovery.
