In 2002, the museum made the decision that they needed a much larger building. In 2005 the museum broke ground in Salt Lake City. When the doors opened in 2006, the museum name was formally changed to the Discovery Gateway Museum. The Discovery Gateway Museum now offers a 60,000 square foot, world-class facility.
On the second floor of the museum, kids can play music on a giant marimba along with keeping a machine humming. Behind this exhibit, there is a children-sized town. This exhibit allows children to go to the supermarket, a restaurant, as well as shop at a store. On the third floor, children can interact with the story factory, playing, drawing and creating animated films.
Workshops are offered for children of ages birth to twelve. Along with the workshops, classes are offered weekly such as music in motion, story time, and science matters. The museum also offers annual events such as summer camps and Breakfast with Santa, which attracts children from all over the state. They can come make crafts with the elves and eat breakfast with Santa.
