Message From the Executive Director
2016 is a busy year for Cheshire Children’s Museum. As of the end of October, CCM hosted over 25,000 visitors (112,800 since we opened in August 2012), as well as being the only children’s museum in the country to host The Power of Children exhibit, complete with a dramatic play series and nationally known guest speakers.
And it’s not over yet! We recently found out that our current space in the Colony Mill is not available for renewal. However, CCM’s landlord, Brady Sullivan Properties, was able to offer us space nearby in the Center at Keene. Cheshire Children’s Museum will be moving to the former One Stop Pet Supply space soon. Check our website and Facebook page for the closing date of our Mill location and the opening date of the Center at Keene location.
We are so excited about the new space—it will be on ground level, and close to restrooms and parking. We are busy planning new exhibits and the details of our move.
This is where we need your help! Although we’re thrilled about CCM’s new space, moving is an unexpected expense. In order to pay for our move, while maintaining our current level of quality programming and exhibits, and our commitment to providing access to those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford to visit, we need your support. We are looking to raise $15,000. Any excess funds will go toward our Healthy Kids 2017 initiative.
