There is a hotspot in downtown Spokane that attracts hundreds of visitors but does not serve food or drink.
“Well, we mainly serve STEAM education. It is science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. And we do this through hands-on games, dynamic exhibits, outreach experiences for schools and students, and family fun for all,” explained Amanda Currie of the Mobius Discovery Center.
What was once the Mobius Children’s Museum has found a new home right across from Numerica Skate Ribbon in Riverfront Park.
“We decided to bring everyone together under one roof. We have kept all the best exhibitions, the crème de la crème, everyone’s favourites. You can find them here, in one place,” Currie said of the recent consolidation.
And, despite some really cool hands-on exhibits like The Water Table, it’s hard to say who’s happiest to be at Mobius: the kids, their parents, or their grandparents.
“It’s really educational. My grandson loves this. It’s something he does probably two or three times a year, with his mom and dad, and all of us,” said grandmother Pam Jacobs.
The Mobius Discovery Center is also a one-stop-shop when you’re looking for a unique birthday present.
The price of admission buys a day full of fun.
“Our daily admission is good all day until five. And, it’s really popular, so families can come back and have lunch or go to the park and come back and do what they couldn’t do earlier,” Currie pointed out.
Rebuilding the Post Street Bridge has made getting to the Discovery Center a bit more difficult.
The city of Spokane hangs signs on Post Street in hopes of putting Mobius on the map.
“So we always say ‘Mobius is a place where children play to learn and parents learn to play’ because it really enriches the experience when parents or guardians play with children. Our staff and volunteers help to that and really like to think Mobius is a safe place to play,” Currie added.
The Mobius Discovery Center, at 331 N. Post Street, is open Wednesday through Sunday.
