Young children in El Paso will soon have a museum of their very own in the heart of the Downtown Arts District, and unlike most museums, it won’t be hands off.  It’ll be all about educating and interacting with local youths and creating an environment that fosters learning and further exploration.

Currently set to open in 2022 with a state of the art, four-story building will be located at 201 W. Main street and will feature among other things a 60-foot atrium as well as a climbing structure spanning the 2nd through 4th floors which just so happen to ALSO provide some amazing views.

The EP children’s museum is moving fast towards completion but needs the public’s help with one important detail and finishing touch.  It needs a name and your little one just might be the person that provides the proverbial cherry on top for this project.

Those wishing to submit their suggestions for naming the EP children’s museum and science center should do the following.

  1. Gather some inspiration and think of a name that fits the purpose of this building and it’s connection to El Paso’s youngsters. Inspiration may come from the building’s unique and amazing design, proposed exhibits and structures, or anything else that you can tickles your fancy.  Don’t be afraid to think outside the box.  View the building and submit those ideas at epcmuseum.org
  2. Get creative and submit your idea via a recorded song, video, dance, drawing, poems, or whatever it is about you that shines and draws other people in. This isn’t the time to be humble either, be BOLD.
  3. Share your ideas via social media with the hashtag #NameTheMuseumChallenge or by clicking here.

The winner of this contest will not only have the satisfaction of knowing their idea will become part of El Paso’s educational legacy but also win a lifetime membership to visit the museum whenever they please.

Deadline to submit is May 1 which is still a way off but will be here before you know it.  For more information on what you can expect once the museum opens, visit epcmuseum.org
