The museum, now starting construction of a beautiful FFKR design, is oriented around the broad theme of curiosity. The 3 unusually-large permanent galleries include a fictional town full of self-discovery and expression (arts focus), a unique, over-the-top water and environment space featuring amazing new innovations on the typical water-based interactives (science focus), and a rich, mysterious Rainforest Adventure full of large-muscle and group problem-solving activity (health focus).
