Abstract : This research was conducted to develop specific facility design program requirements for a hands-on science museum called the Discovery Center. This information generated creative ways to use current materials, technologies, and approaches to integrate the complex systems and interactive devices within the building, and to create a facility that is appealing to the visitor, provides exciting educational opportunities, and sets the standard for an Army maintained science museum. This information will be used to provide the government's input to the architects contracted to plan, design, and prepare construction documents. This report contains detailed program requirements and design criteria for the major building facilities, including square footage requirements. Recommendations for interior and exterior aesthetics are also included.
