- Abilene, TX (1888PressRelease) December 30, 2011 - The Discovery Science Place in Tyler, Texas has revealed the new interactive courthouse exhibit built by Mecca Design and Production, a leading event and trade show exhibit design group in Dallas, Texas. The courthouse, sponsored by the Smith County and Texas Bar Foundation, as well as Ron Mabry Architecture and Jacobe Brothers Construction, is the centerpiece of the Hometown U.S.A. experience at the children's museum. The design is similar to the original downtown Smith County Courthouse, constructed in 1909.
Children can dress in a judge's robe and pound the gavel on a raised platform, sit on the benches, in the witness box, and experience what it would be like to be in a real courtroom. In addition to offering an immersive experience for guests of all ages to see a courthouse from the inside, the partnership between The Discovery Science Place and CASA of East Texas and Children's Advocacy Center of Smith County intends to provide a hand's on, role-play experience for children who may need to visit a courtroom.
Jim Cox, Exhibits Manager at The Discovery Science Place, shared, "Continuing the possibilities for role-playing, the courthouse will be the focal point in our interactive Hometown U.S.A. exhibit and will be educational as well as entertaining."
