KidsPlay Awarded Grant to Begin Expansion

Dear Friends,

KidsPlay Children’s Museum is pleased to announce that it was recently awarded a $45,000 grant by the

Seherr-Thoss Charitable Trust. These funds will be used to connect the Museum’s 61 & 69 Main Street

facilities and to prepare the front 4,000 sq. ft. of street-level space in the 69 Main Street facility for

exhibit expansion. This is an important step toward the full integration of this recently purchased

building with the Museum’s current venue.

Once this space is connected and renovated over the course of the next year the Museum will have an

opportunity to develop permanent exhibits addressing large motor skills and creative arts. Exhibits will

continue to be designed and built specifically for the developing minds of young children and will offer

unparalleled experiences away from the screen.

Over the next few years KidsPlay plans to integrate the full 7,500 sq. ft. of the street level space

available in the 69 Main Street building. The estimated cost of the total project is $895,000. The

museum is working diligently to secure funding for this major expansion.

We thank you for your interest and support of KidsPlay Children’s Museum. We are very pleased to

move forward and expand our service to the children and families of the community.

KidsPlay will remain open to the public at 61 Main Street from 10 am to 4 pm Wednesdays through

Sundays.
