The El Paso Children’s Museum and Science center has a new name and it's encouraging our youth to keep their heads in the clouds! 

El Paso Children’s Museum officials shared the new name of the museum Wednesday morning at a ceremony attended by 100 excited 1st through 5th graders at Aoy Elementary School:  La Nube: The Shape of Imagination. 

“When La Nube opens, families will explore, play, and learn throughout four floors of exhibits. Taking its inspiration from the clouds above, La Nube will challenge learners of all ages to reach for the clouds and let their imagination soar,” said Executive Director Barry Van Deman.

The museum shared a video on their Instagram page that described “having your head in a cloud” as a positive way of saying a person is busy using their imagination.

La Nube will be a fun and educational center that is sure to help kids spark their curiosity when it comes to science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM)

The museum will allow children and their families to interact with hands-on exhibits, an exploration of land, water, and sky.

Why “La Nube” and How Was It Chosen?

La Nube means “the Cloud” in Spanish and refers to the giant cloud-shaped building under construction on the corner of Santa Fe Street and W. Main Drive in downtown El Paso. The name was chosen from a long list of more than 600 suggestions submitted by members of the El Paso community.

La Nube is set to open its doors in early 2023.
