El Paso Children’s Museum kicks off ‘Name the Museum’ challenge


EL PASO, Texas (KTSM-TV) — The proposed Downtown children’s museum has a design. But there is one thing missing: a name.

Involvement from the community will ultimately decide what the facility will be called. On Monday, the Name the Museum challenge kicked off.

Here is some criteria to consider when choosing titles for the museum:

  • Step 1: Think of a name for the new El Paso children’s museum and science center. Names may be inspired by the design and the dynamic exhibit spaces inside. Go to epcmuseum.org to submit ideas — and get some inspiration.
  • Step 2: Record ideas creatively. Songs, dances, videos and drawings are welcome.
  • Step 3: Share ideas on social media using the hashtag #NameTheMuseumChallenge or click here.

The grand prize in naming the museum will be a Lifetime membership, as well as other prizes being awarded during the challenge and ends May 1.

Design by architecture firm Snohetta, whose partner and managing director for The Americas Elaine Molinar is a native El Pasoan — the state-of-the-art museum will have a cloud-like design and four themed floors with exhibits by Gyroscope Inc.

The museum will showcase exhibits related to science, technology, engineering and the arts and will feature interactive activities for children and teenagers alike.
