This whimsical, nature-inspired space nurtures the imagination with tangible and playful details. It features experiences like an imaginative fairy garden with elements of light and sound, grassy moguls, a creative climber just for littles, peek-a-boo with smart glass, and plenty of amenities for families of newborns and toddlers. 

“When we set out to design this experience, we took a hard look at the latest research on the different types of play and their role  in the cognitive, emotional and physical development for early learners,” said Museum President and CEO, Mike Yankovich, “Based  on what we learned, we designed Bloom to promote adult-child interaction as well as the curiosity, exploration and empowerment  of the Museum’s youngest visitors.”  Bloom Children's Museum

To bring this space to the next level, original art pieces are woven throughout the exhibit to make this a truly one-of-a-kind immersive experience. 

“We wanted art and beauty layered into the entire exhibit, not just something that hung on the walls. We worked with four  different artists and numerous craftsmen who designed in tandem to bring the Museum’s vision for Bloom to life,” said Kerri Atter,  Director of Special Projects, “I like to think of it as a meadow; all the pieces flow together, but as you look closer, you see all the  individual details that make Bloom a truly magical world.”

They believe in kid-powered learning and every day, their expertly designed exhibits and programs open doors  for Colorado’s curious young minds to express what they know and to discover, create and explore more – on their own terms.
