Have you taken your kids to a children’s museum?

Cities across the country, including Denver and Ft Collins, have museums specifically for children with interactive, hands-on, educational and kid-friendly exhibits. A local group wants to open a children’s museum in downtown Cheyenne by 2015 and is inviting the public to a meeting on Tuesday, October 22, in the Willow Room of the Laramie County Library, 2200 Pioneer Avenue, at 5 p.m. to discuss the idea.A board of directors has been formed and they are applying for nonprofit status for the museum. Organizers hope to renovate an existing building in the downtown Cheyenne area.

Anyone with ideas for the children’s museum or who would like to volunteer to help is encouraged to attend Tuesday’s meeting or email childrensmuseumofcheyenne@gmail.com.

I worked at the Kidspace Museum in Pasadena, California and they had lots of popular exhibits including the Antwall, a dress up area featuring the back of a fire engine and a working radio and TV station.

Kidspace also had art projects for children including a button making press and a harmonograph. We would lead tours of school children through the museum during the week and would open to the public on the weekends. Parents could also schedule birthday parties.

If you’ve visited a children’s museum and have any ideas, please attend the meeting on Tuesday.

Do you think Cheyenne needs a museum especially for children?
