This two-story climber, located in the Great Hall of the Family Museum, is made up of large climbing platforms and is surrounded by a secure vinyl-coated cable netting. This artistically stunning structure allows Family Museum guests to climb from the first floor to the second floor while observing photographs of clouds on the platforms on the climb up and aerial photographs on the way down. The climber is designed in such a way that there is no fall greater than 18 inches making it safe for the Museum’s young demographic. Age recommendation is 3 and older.
Fundraising for the project started in 2016, and in early 2020 Genesis Medical Center president, Jordan Voight, presented the final donation on behalf of the Genesis Birth Center to the Family Museum. Other contributors include Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust, City of Bettendorf, Scott County Regional Authority, John Deere Foundation, Charles & Nancy von Maur, Hunt & Diane Harris Family Foundation, and the Regional Development Authority.
