Miss. Children’s Museum hosts first visitors
Published: December 3,2010
JACKSON — The new Mississippi Children’s Museum has received its first visitors – a Rankin County fifth-grade class and local officials.
The Clarion-Ledger reports the museum officially will open to the public on Saturday, but welcomed the visitors Thursday as part of its opening celebration.
Planning for a children’s museum began in 1994. The Junior League of Jackson adopted the project in 2003 and pledged $1 million toward its creation.
The 40,000-square-foot museum sits atop LeFleurs Bluff, near the Museum of Natural Science.
