Since 2010, children and grown-ups alike have enjoyed exploring the West through play in the R.B. Annis Western Family Experience. Reopening in November, the reconstruction will transform this discovery area to focus on five diverse families of the contemporary West. Families will also enjoy a re-envisioned Cagle Family Gateway to Learning, home to the Stephen and Sharon Zimmerman Resource Center, Watanabe Family Library and the TCU and Dr. Ann H. Hunt studios.
Designed with our youngest visitors in mind, a journey through the discovery area will unlock imaginations and feature:
A place for the whole family, this area includes the museum’s TCU and Dr. Ann H. Hunt studios, Watanabe Family Library and Stephen and Sharon Zimmerman Resource Center. Visitors can sit and relax, enjoy reading together, do research, create art, complete a puzzle or two and discover the many books and resources available. This newly renovated space also includes a quiet room for guests who need a break from the action, and a nursing room for the museum’s youngest visitors and their caregivers.
