FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Kern County Museum Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of
DISCOVERY WORLD, the newest and most exciting childrens’ exhibition
at the Kern County Museum on June 9. The new Gallery will lead young (and the young
at heart) through a multi-disciplined learning environment not seen before here in Kern
Exhibits range from HISTORY, GEOGRAPHY, ART, SCIENCE, and MATH – in many
cases encompassing more than one subject.
The focal point of the new exhibit is ‘The Map That Will Floor You’ – the largest
interactive map in the area – students will walk across the Country, learning about states as
they pass through them. It’s an unusual and amazing way to learn about this great country.
Also, the new Light & Illusion room will astound and amaze with an array of color and
shapes created by the visitors themselves.
The Exhibition opens with over a dozen new exhibits and a commitment by the Museum
to add one new exhibit each month for the next two years, making DISCOVERY
WORLD the largest and most exciting learning gallery in central California.
The funding for this wonderful addition was provided by:
