Kids Discovery Museum
Opened in June 2010. The Kids Discovery Museum (KiDiMu) is a two-story steel and glass structure. The building is carefully located next to an environmentally sensitive area. The site was previously a junk yard so extensive work was done to clean up the site. The result of this work was a dramatic increase in water quality in the neighboring ravine. The building has a LEED® silver rating and is one of the first in the state to receive both a LEED CS and CI designation.
As part of the new Island Gateway cultural center, the 5,000 square-foot building is just a short walk from the island’s ferry terminal and town center. The non-profit center provides children and caregivers a destination venue for interactive discovery of art, science, and culture through hands-on exhibits, daily art projects, cultural, and scientific programs.
