A DIFFERENT KIND OF WATER LANDING

Jan 27, 2011

Evergreen Museum

By Kasey Richter, Director of PR and Marketing

As you might have heard, the Museum has an amazing new project that is becoming close to completion.

This project is the Evergreen Wings & Waves Waterpark, a nonprofit educational Waterpark that will include four waterslides, a wave pool and a children’s museum dedicated to teaching students about the power of water. The space features nearly 70,000 square feet of educational fun, highlighted by a massive B747-100 aircraft that rests on the top of the building. Throughout the structure, Waterpark visitors will learn about the power of water and its effects on society through dozens of interactive exhibits and learning tools.

This Waterpark is unique for a few different reasons. One, it is the only aviation-themed waterpark that we know of. Two, it is the only building that has a 747 on the roof (to be technically accurate, there is a 747 that is elevated off the ground in Germany, but it is not on a roof). Third, this Waterpark places a massive emphasis on the Museum’s mission, which is to inspire and educate. So not only will the Waterpark visitors have a blast, but they will learn something as well.

The Museum staff is still finalizing details regarding the Waterpark opening, but I wanted to provide a little more information on that big building next to the Museum with an aircraft on top. For more photos of the construction progress, check out our facebook page and our twitter feed.

Watch how we lifted the 747 on top of the roof (thanks to one of our favorite Museum visitors, Even Q):

#171 I think you need to start asking the Gov when they are going to re-asses everyones taxes now that home values have dropped dricltamaaly.The pathetic part of NJ will be Property taxes paid out per year being higher than the mortgage on the home. Makes me sick.

LO7&H8230;#ow̵L;s the egg on the face, Frankie? Obama’s America “runs counter to that of most Americans”??? Your propaganda runs counter to the actual truth, Frankie. Obama swept the battleground states + 332 to 206 electoral college + won the popular by miilions. Here’s a napkin for the egg, Frank. You have less cred than you did last week, thats for sure. http://zpyiks.com [url=http://wtkyxgqwl.com]wtkyxgqwl[/url] [link=http://nzwvpyson.com]nzwvpyson[/link]

Ganhei uma epsonstylus photo R380 já há algum tempo e nunca usei. Agora que resolvi instalar a dita cuja, ela me manda a mensagem que não reconhece os cartuchos. Só que eles são os originais que vieram com ela e que só abri agora. Eles têm prazo de validade? Pq será que ela não os reconhece? Tem alguma ideia do que posso fai?erObrzgada
