Millennium Center

Project Description

This exhibit hall will incorporate a residential appearance with a building footprint of approximately 3,000 square feet. Materials and construction techniques will be selected that demostrate for a strong, safe building that promotes protection of the environment.

State-of-the-art family-friendly exhibits will reinforce this important theme and show visitors how people may be safe in the sometimes threatening natural world and how the natural world may be saved from the effects of human habitation.

Planners envision that families and individuals will tour this center and become awed by the power and beauty of nature, empowered to live safely in harmony with our world, and motivated to exercise ever more wise stewardship of natural resources.
