Campaign underway to bring new attractions to Sci-Port in Shreveport

SHREVEPORT, La. – Sci-Port, Louisiana’s Science Center in Shreveport, is kicking off a new capital campaign to create some new attractions.

Robert Stroud, the campaign’s chairman, announced plans last week to embark on an $8.9 million push to add several features to Sci-Port’s facility, beginning with a new children’s museum.

The Times ( ) reports the campaign will be implanted through three phases, beginning with the Itty Bitty City, a children’s museum that will be built on the second floor of Sci-Port. The mock city is expected to cost about $2 million. It likely will open in late fall of 2015.

Following that project will be construction of the Louisiana Gallery, a full renovation of Sci-Port’s current Red River Gallery. The final phase is a revamping of the facility’s technological needs.
