Minnesota Children’s Museum To Reopen After $30M Makeover
ST. PAUL (AP) - Officials are set to unveil the $30 million makeover of the Minnesota Children's Museum in St. Paul.
Museum officials say a grand reopening will be held June 7.
The facility is now 35 percent larger with 10 new exhibits, including two four-story climbing towers, a netted catwalk and a spiral slide. The museum also has a new cafe, coffee bar and skyway-level entrance.
The museum closed in December for the renovations, which were in part aimed at appealing more to older children. Among those exhibits are a laser maze and a tinkering studio.
General admission tickets are increasing from $3 to $12.95, while annual membership plans now range from $129 to $189.
A free-admission day and block party will be held on June 17.
