Children's Museum closing

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.—The Children's Museum has been in the community for 20 years, but this month they are closing their doors. 

Museum volunteers say they have a big need for more space but can't afford it.  Now they plan to raise money to build a new facility.  The building will have room for children ages 2 years old to 12 years old.  So far, they do not have a fundraising plan.  Until then, volunteers say they will be a ‘museum on the move.'

‘We want to go to community events and have things for children and discovery and exploration, as well as some of our exhibits that are popular, our big bubble machines and also have things for parents to help educate them on them on the interaction with their kids," says Cindy Morris, Board President.

The last day to enjoy the museum will be June 30th.  After that volunteers will start dismantling and selling leftover toys.
