Today marks the grand opening of MOXI, Santa Barbara's newest museum, designed to engage children in the wonders of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).  Supremely located on Lower State Street, adjacent to the train station and the Funk Zone, MOXI will be a hit with families from the moment it opens.

After breaking ground in 2014, the finishing touches were completed in early 2017.  The building's design was dreamt up by the late Barry Burkus along with AB Design Studio.  Here's an amazing video by local videographer J North Productions:

But MOXI isn't just about a user-friendly location and captivating architecture.  The real draws are the 70+ displays inside, designed in collaboration with Gyroscope, Inc.  You can read about these high quality installments here, here, and here.  Find your way there with the map below:

 

In a town filled with wonderful family activities centered on nature and the arts, MOXI is a welcome addition that supplements a child's experience with STEM exposure.  Santa Barbara now officially offers the entire spectrum of learning and catapults itself into the running for most family-friendly town in California!
