Jack Rouse Associates Work with the San Antonio Children’s Museum


Jack Rouse Associates recently worked with the San Antonio Children’s Museum to create a dynamic new interactive ball gallery that will serve as a colorful and iconic space for the popular museum.

The exhibit, called PowerBall Hall, opened May 30th of this year and promotes cooperative play while conveying the basic principles of physics.

Themed loosely to a factory aesthetic, the new exhibit invites children to move colorful balls through a variety of launchers, interactive walls, a mini-rollercoaster, conveyor belts, pneumatic tubes, and a Bernoulli blower. JRA provided conceptual and schematic design for the project and teamed with Boss Display, who provided fabrication and installation.

“We are thrilled with PowerBall Hall. This fresh and exciting exhibit has enlivened the museum. It’s a perfect example of the kind of fun, interactive and educational exhibits we are committed to offering and we could not be more pleased with Jack Rouse Associates and the quality of their work, ” said Vanessa Lacoss Hurd, Executive Director of the San Antonio Children’s Museum.

JRA provides experiential design and realization for museums, visitor centers, theme parks, attractions and sports facilities around the world. 

In recent years, JRA has designed a number of children’s museums and exhibits for clients including Imaginosity, Dublin Children’s Museum; C’MON – The Children’s Museum of Naples; Guangdong Science Center; Peoria PlayHouse; Oslo Barnemuseum and the Kohl Children’s Museum.
