Durango Discovery Kids

The Children’s Museum of Durango officially merged with Durango Discovery Museum in January. The children’s physical play space, located upstairs at the Durango Arts Center, and the roster of classes and activities is now a program of the Durango Discovery Museum that has been renamed Durango Discovery Kids.


DDK Museum Manager Ashley Hein, who was promoted in June, said Durango Discovery Kids will eventually be housed in the DDM historic Powerhouse on Camino Del Rio. She said DDM intends to start interior work on the Powerhouse this year, including plumbing and heating.


"The future space will allow us to increase our programs and class sizes, and be open seven days a week."
