Supporting Technology Revolution

A $1 million gift given by the Kleinheinz Family Foundation for Arts and Education puts the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History at the forefront of digital learning.

Established in 1941, the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History (FWMSH) is not only dedicated to the idea of lifelong learning, but also defined by its ability to engage its children and adult guests through creative programs and exhibits.

The $1 million gift will go to support transformation technology and education methodologies at the Museum. It will also act as a catalyst for new and increased funding from others.

Museum President Van A. Romans says, “This gift both recognizes and advances the Museum’s efforts to make sure that the children and teens of Fort Worth and North Texas – and their parents, teachers and families – are part of the global technology revolution.”

Generous contributors, Marsha and John B. Kleinheinz of Fort Worth, support several charitable organizations in the community. Marsha is a trustee of the museum. She says, “We know that people, especially children, who are involved in the Museum’s education and public programs experience learning in new and exciting ways that have a lasting effect on how they explore and understand the world. We believe that without the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, there would be a huge vacuum in the educational and cultural life of our city.”

This month, museum visitors can experience What’s Up, Doc? The Animation of Chuck Jones, a traveling exhibition that shows the creative genius behind some of the most enduringly popular cartoons and animated films of all time. To see what else is going on at the FWMSH, visit
