So we were close to some of the action surrounding the museum’s opening, and among its earliest and most frequent visitors — thanks to its vast offerings of hands-on exhibits and activities of interest to children and adults.
I hit the Arizona Science Center with my 21-year-old son recently, eager to see how it’s expanding and improving — and excited to explore the “RACE: Are We That Different?” exhibit (there through Jan 2, 2011).
Our photos don’t do justice to the exhibit, at once comprehensive and accessible, but I hope they’ll inspire you to hit the Arizona Science Center yourself to explore “RACE” and other offerings.
Having witnessed the Arizona Science Center growing from a new to an expansive museum, I’m reminded again of Phoenix’s growth in arts and culture during the past two decades — and eager to see what we’ll all create together during the next twenty years.
Note: On a sad note, the Phoenix Museum of History — located next to the Arizona Science Center and Rosson House — has closed due to lack of funding. Please don’t take our arts and cultural resources for granted. Your visits, your volunteerism, and your donations are truly critical to keeping them here for our own and future generations.
