The New Children's Museum - 200 West Island Avenue

The New Children's Museum replaces the former children's museum. After many starts and fits and much fear that it would not come to pass the New Children's Museum is open for the children. It is a beautiful building topped with solar panels. Across from the main building their is a playground where children can draw on a huge wall with chalk. There is an old Volkswagen Bug that the children paint every day. There are wooden scooters that look like Segway scooters. The children also make objects with clay.
