La Nube's Origin Story

The concept for La Nube began to form after the City of El Paso's quality of life bond passed in 2012 and included funds for a children's museum. The City of El Paso, the El Paso Community Foundation, and other regional stakeholders collaborated to make this project a real community endeavor. La Nube has expanded into a bilingual, immersive, and interactive learning center for individuals and families of all ages, primarily thanks to this partnership and the support of the community. Parents, teachers, therapists, and other community members volunteered their knowledge about El Paso’s culture and values, as well as important aspects of child development, during the planning process.
