The DISCOVERY Children’s Museum was formerly known as the Lied Discovery Children’s Museum, located in downtown Las Vegas. The original facility opened its doors in 1990, contributing to the culture of Southern Nevada as well as enjoying consistent recognition for its award-winning interactive exhibits.
Despite the ongoing popularity of the museum, it became clear that, with more than 2.1 million annual visitors, a new location and a new design vision were needed to adapt to the changing times and changing community.
In support of the museum’s evolution and solidification as a premier cultural attraction, LGA provided planning and interior design services on the new three-story, 58,000 s.f. facility. In addition to larger permanent exhibit and administrative spaces, the expanded museum features more classrooms and workshops to accommodate a greater number of groups visiting simultaneously, as well as a gift shop and traveling exhibit.
