As the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum announces events for July and August, visitors have a last opportunity to visit the Children’s Museum in the current location. Events of fun and adventure will continue until the big move planned for September.
As June comes to an end, Space Jam comes to the Museum with moon sand, a moon walk, and a hunt for moon rocks. To mark the final 4th of July at the Watson Building, a July 4th parade will be held inside the building on July 3. Children are encouraged to participate in the parade by decorating riding vehicles. A Children’s Health Day sponsored by Walmart and with participants from Hunt Regional Healthcare, Family Smiles, and Carevide will be on July 16 from 10:00 to 11:30 and 12:30 to 2:00.

Remodeling on the building to be the new site for the Northeast Texas Children’s began this week.  Plans are to move the site of the Children’s Museum to a newly purchased building at 100 Maple Avenue sometime in early fall.  In addition to the building, the Children’s Museum also purchased 7 acres.

Warren Dunham, a long-time volunteer with local Boy Scouts, will be remembered on July 18 with Warren Dunham Day. The month of July will conclude with a Princess Pamper Party for special young girls.
August provides a special goodbye to the Children’s Museum’s twelve exciting years at the Watson Building. Construction of Main Street, new Party Rooms, and new exhibits provide a look into the future of the Children’s Museum. “The construction on the building at our new site is progressing on schedule under Building Supervisor Beckey Thompson. Main Street will have a new look, and we are excited about the improvements the new site will provide. We look to the initial opening at 100 Maple as the first phase in providing new and exciting exhibits for children in northeast Texas. After we actually get in the building, plans will begin for Phase 2. Improvements and upgrades will continue as part of the continuing operation of the Children’s Museum,” said Sharline Freeman, Executive Director of the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum.
