CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
After nearly two years, the Cleveland Children’s Museum is about to reopen at a new location.
“Just to have the families and children come back in and play and learn, we are so excited,” said Executive Director Maria Campanelli.
With the move they have quadrupled their space and tripled parking. From the moment you drive up to the remodeled Stager-Beckwith home, you immediately think of a castle or dollhouse.
“I think that fun, imaginative play, the experience with the Children’s Museum begins when you pull up,” Campanelli said.
That continues inside the 40,000 square foot colorful space. They started the more than $10 million project back in 2014, and have been able to fundraise all but the last million. Campanelli says it was a blessing in disguise when their lease wasn’t renewed.
“This is a completely different museum. We did not take any of our exhibits with us.”
They have dollhouses, cafe’s and nooks something for every child.
Their new location at 3813 Euclid Avenue in downtown Cleveland is set to reopen on Nov. 6.
