Aspen Science Center takes temporary residence at Crystal Palace building

Staff report

The Aspen Science Center has reached an agreement to temporarily take up the space once occupied by the Crystal Palace.

“We are very excited and very much appreciate having a space to call ours, even if it is only temporary,” said Jackie Francis, executive director of the Science Center, in a statement issued Thursday. “Engaging the community and visitors through interactive discovery is essential to our organization’s mission, and now we have a place to create that environment on a more consistent basis.”

The Science Center arranged the deal with developer Mark Hunt, who owns the Crystal Palace building on the 300 block of East Hyman Avenue.
