Project Description:

Goals can be met, but isn’t it more fun if they’re shattered? LaunchPAD Children’s Museum hoped for 50,000 visitors in their first year. They welcomed over 93,000 and haven’t slowed down since. That means thousands more children than anticipated are learning about construction, architecture, water, wind, agriculture, and role-playing--all while building, splashing, and laughing. The PAD in LaunchPAD stands for “play and discover,” because the exhibits are experiential and hands-on, encouraging imagination, problem solving and open-ended exploration.

This $6 million family-friendly venue, targeted to children from infancy to age ten, isn’t just an interactive learning and discovery zone for greater Siouxland families. It’s contributing to the rejuvenation of downtown Sioux City’s Historic Pearl Street. As Executive Director Bob Fitch commented, "LaunchPAD is improving the quality of life for families in Sioux City and the entire region."
