HOLIDAY DECORATIONS TAKE CENTER STAGE
AT THE MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND HISTORY
The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History is lighting up the holiday season both inside and out this year. Be sure to pay a visit to the Museum after hours to view our holiday Caterpillar Light Walk. You and your family will delight in this whimsical decoration, which "dances" and twinkles to festive holiday music. The light walk is located near the main entrance of the Museum and will be lit for your enjoyment through January 2014. The light walk is our free treat to the community. Enjoy! Designed by Museum concept designer Amy Romans, it is composed of 53 arches of galvanized steel illuminated with more than 1,300 feet of LED energy-saving lights and adorned with sparkling snowflakes. The 10-foot-tall, 140-foot long installation is intended to reflect the joy of the season and bring smiles to children’s faces.
Elsewhere, bright Mexican luminaries, hand-crafted by tin artisans in Mexico, adorn the exterior of the Museum. Inspired by the architecture of Legorreta + Legorreta, the metal light cases reflect the square motif found throughout the building.
Inside, the Museum’s atrium features a huge holiday tree, decorated with bright lights, swirls of color, and fun characters. The unique tree is purple in color – again reflecting the Legorreta + Legorreta influence.
Bring the whole family and experience light and color at the Museum of Science and History this holiday season. And bring your camera: there are multitudes of photo opportunities around every corner.
