Phase I: The Community Gallery walls featured a timeline story of the Museum. 2018 marks 10 years as The New Children’s Museum, but our rich history in San Diego includes a 35-year journey layered with multiple facilities, name changes, locations, staff, partner organizations, supporters and visitors. For this installation theme we celebrated our history and acknowledged all that we’ve accomplished in the past 35 years as well as the role our organization continues to play in the community.
Phase II: For Phase I of this installation, we celebrated the past through the timeline display. For Phase II, we invited our visitors to look towards the future with us! Visitors were able to stop by and drop a postcard to their future self in the space-age time capsule, read a book about the future, or share their own story on a rainbow timeline.
