North Museum of Nature and Science

Masterplan, Entry, and Exhibits

Bring out your inner scientist and meet a new species or two.

West Office designed and implemented a new master plan that transformed the North Museum into a more contemporary science and nature museum. The plan includes a new full-dome digital theater planetarium, which also functions as an event and program space. West Office also designed a new Nature Explorer Gallery and Live Animal Room, intended to bring out the inner scientist in visitors. Exhibits include a display of artifacts from the museum’s extensive collection, large-scale crawl-through scenic elements, as well as live honeybees, lizards, and other critters.
