After a near two-year closure, the Children's Museum of Cleveland will reopen this fall. The museum announced
today it will officially open doors Nov. 6 at a new location in Midtown.
Back in 2015, when former site owners University Circle Inc. declined to renew the museum's lease, the institution's future was uncertain.
But many Clevelanders stepped up to help the museum, including an offer of a new space. In that time, nearly $10 million was raised to renovate the Stager-Beckwith mansion, one of the final remnants of the famed Millionaires' Row at 3813 Euclid Ave., for the museum.
Now readying to open in two months, the museum has announced a few new exhibits called Adventure City (see below), Wonder Lab, and Making Miniatures — all designed to help children have fun while learning.
The new museum, one of the few in Ohio designed specifically for small children, is four times the size of its previous location, plus there's parking.
