MOXI: The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation, which opened its doors in 2017, welcomed its one millionth guest last week in colorful and explosive style.

As Vincent Regina, manager of Chili’s in Goleta, brought his youngsters Dante, 3, and Vivian, 5, through the door, a cannon of colorful confetti unloaded, much to the delight of the other children in the lobby, with DJ Gavin Roy playing the latest hits.

“What a total surprise!” exclaimed Regina. “We really had absolutely no idea.”

Robin Gose, MOXI’s president and CEO, described it as “quite an accomplishment.” “We are thrilled to have become an integral part of the Santa Barbara experience and a trusted resource for scientific learning. We look forward to many years of fun and discovery ahead.”

To mark the occasion Dante and Vivian, students at Starr King Parent-Child Workshop, received a $250 gift card for a spending spree at the museum’s store and guest passes to the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Museum of Natural History, the Botanic Garden, Casa del Herrero, the Santa Barbara Mission, and the zoo.

There were also gift cards for Rusty’s Pizza, and Dart Coffee at the SB Maritime Museum.

What fun…
