The Mississippi Children’s Museum in Meridian serves as a vibrant gateway into the city’s downtown corridor. By positioning the building closer to the street, it helps hold an urban edge and allows the building to serve as the museum’s own billboard. Larger than life sculptures of children will be visible along the street, helping create a whimsical and playful feel to the building.
The design process has melded safety and innovation as driving forces. The museum entrance is positioned off the street, creating a safe zone for children and their families to enter away from traffic. The inventive design will provide a perfect space for children to learn and explore with interactive exhibits designed by Kraemer Design + Production, Inc. The state-of-the-art museum will provide inspiration and enlightenment for generations to come.
