The My World Discovery Museum located in Chubbuck has a new exhibit to share with the world. The non-profit museum has recently acquired a paleontological dig experience called “Dig in with Adventure Orthodontics.” The experience was paid for and donated by Adventure Orthodontics in Idaho Falls. Natali McKee, one of the co-founders of the museum, says their children’s learning exhibits are all sponsored.
My World Discovery Museum decided to partner up with Adventure Orthodontics due to similar interests.
“They are very into what we are also into which is STEM education. That type of learning engages the children and it also allows them to pursue careers that are more along those lines,” McKee said.
The main goal of this new dinosaur exhibit and the whole museum in general is the idea of learning through play. The children are able to learn problem solving skills and peak their interest by providing new experiences.
Mothers Natali McKee and Melody Daniels started the museum in 2018. The main reason for the pair starting the museum was being able to provide a place where their children could play.
“We each have six children and we really wanted a place for our kids to be able to come and learn in this type of environment in Southeast Idaho because we don’t have those types of options,” McKee said.
At the moment there are 11 exhibit areas with multiple activities inside each area for kids to enjoy. The museum is open Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Pine Ridge Mall in Chubbuck. Click here for more information.
