The Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana was awarded this year’s National Medal for Museum and Library Service.
The National Medal is the Nation’s highest honor granted to museums and libraries for service to the community.
The Institute of Museum and Library Services awards these medals to only 10 recipients across the country each year.
“This award celebrates and recognizes the hard work and dedication of our team and community leaders towards delivering a mission that is not measured in dollars, but in the hearts, minds and actions of eager learners,” Joe Adams, the president of the Discovery Science Center, said in a statement.
In celebration of the museum making a difference for individuals, families and communities, the National Medal will be presented to the Discovery Science Center in Washington, D.C. on May 8.
