CDMoD Plans to Reopen in 2022, Reimagined

  The Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert (CDMoD) is excited to share that we have a plan for reopening in a reimagined way, with our community’s supportWe are in the process of working with our original exhibitry company to bring new experiences and programming that our community expects and deserves.   

Long term, we have five phases to include a reimagination of all three buildings, a building expansion and new construction, as well as an exterior plan. Our goal is to expand our experiences and programming to include all ages and family members.

In Phase One we are reimagining Building One to create a brand new, whimsical, creative, exciting space for our 0-8-year-olds. The space will include creative ways to imagine, express, move, experiment, explore and dream. A few of the components of this new experience will include things like a kids’ playtime theater, a designated protected space for kids aged 0-3, a 14 foot net climb and rock climbing wall, a dreamy retreat with sensory and calming opportunities, light sculpture prism wall, pinball golf and a scarf blower as well as many opportunities to build, experiment and learn. Check back to see renderings and inspirational images of what is to come.  Our anticipated opening will be in late 2022.

 We are grateful to the generous donors who have helped sustain the museum through its closure and throughout the last 22 years. Our future depends on your support. A large-scale campaign is launching to engage donors, corporate partners, sponsors and the community at large. Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert has been an institution in the valley (in two different locations) for three decades. Reopening CDMoD will take long-term planning and commitment from its board of directors and greater Coachella Valley community.
