As the WMNH successfully broadens its science education reach to well beyond the classroom walls, it has reached its spatial limits and is excited to announce the 2024 Expansion Program. Due to the museum’s rapid success and increase in guests reached through a multitude of programming, the WMNH is in need of additional space in order to satisfy greater demands for educational programming and museum exhibits. The proposed expansion would provide additional space for the three key elements of the museum’s success: exhibits, educational programming, and paleontological research. New exhibits will include the Hall of Mammals, displaying both present-day and prehistoric representations. The WMNH will also be expanding the Paleontology Preparation Lab to include more space for research and education programming.
Fossil Futures Program
A museum is a child's personal classroom in which they have the chance to fully immerse themselves in learning environments unlike any they've experienced before. WMNH is committed to expanding the availability of science education beyond the classroom walls and reinvigorating the importance of museums. Funding assistance for partial operating costs and increased staffing will continue to help WMNH revive the importance of museums in today's society. WMNH provides all visitors with an interactive glimpse into the natural world and more specifically the ancient life that once inhabited North Texas. WMNH also retains a successful volunteer program that currently hosts approximately 30 members. Your generous contributions contribute to the world-class museum experience we provide to schools at no cost. By providing the students of the future with free museum tours and programs, we are inspiring the next generations to find their passion and explore their world.
