In 2011, the museum received a generous gift of $10 million from Jeff Bezos, the founder and chief executive officer of Seattle-based Amazon.com. The grant will be used to establish the "Center for Innovation" at the new MOHAI at Lake Union Park.
The Center for Innovation will explore and showcase our region's rich history of innovation, one that has created benefit for people around the world. The museum is currently working with Olson Kundig Architects to develop content for the center. Please check back soon for more details.
