Photos: New Logo Debuts For Children's Discovery Museum

Feb 20, 2018

The Children's Discovery Museum (CDM) in Uptown Normal has unveiled a new look.

CDM visitors will be greeted with an eye-catching colorful board featuring the museum's new logo. A celebration was held Tuesday to introduce the new design.

The new logo contains three key elements (a paintbrush, gear, and hammer) that embody the CDM's mission to "inspire the love of learning through the power of play." Together the symbols represent the creativity, technology, and hands-on elements the museum strives to promote to its young visitors.

The new look and design can also be seen in the rest of the museum, giving guests a new experience throughout.

“Since 2004, the Children’s Discovery Museum has been a must-see family destination in our community,” said Normal Mayor Chris Koos. “This building was the beginning of something very, very special for Normal and the larger Central Illinois community. Now it has an exciting modern ‘look’ that promises an equally exciting future.”

Since 1994 the CDM has hosted over 1.7 million visitors, with an average of 33,062 children annually.
