Kidseum Celebrates 20 Years with a Grand Reopening on December 7, 2014

Santa Ana, Calif. — The Bowers Museum is proud to announce that it will celebrate Kidseum’s 20th anniversary with a whole new look and programming for the 21st century. Kidseum will be high-tech and interactive with a focus on it’s new mission, “Igniting imagination through exploration,” stressing the excitement of art and archeology.

A few of the many new areas to explore include the “Green Screen Time Machine,” where children and their families can travel to the world’s most historic sites on a Wells Fargo Stagecoach. Visitors to Kidseum will be able to experience the famous 45,000 year old Caves of Lascaux, France in a unique Glow Cave with special glow-in-the-dark projects.

Smart Boards and Smart Tables have been installed for a variety of programs from storytelling to lessons about our diverse world cultures.

A richly equipped Archaeology lab will invite the visitor to explore the world of archaeology using the tools of an archaeologist in a royal Egyptian tomb. Everything at the new Kidseum is designed to excite not just the children, but the entire family with many activities for
families to do together. A public celebration will take place on Sunday, December 7, 2014 with free admission to explore our world through artifacts, ancient monuments and legends our ancestors left behind.
