Eds Note: Along with the occaisionally talked about zoo, many parents also would like to see a children’s museum here. Here is a way to offer your opinion.

We received this announcment at the CVB today. Maybe we don’t need a seperate Children’s Museum in Wausau- maybe a joint venture is a better way?

Central Wisconsin Children’s Museum Seeks Input from Wausau Area Families
Central Wisconsin Children’s Museum (CWCM) will host a public focus group with Wausau area families and other interested citizens on Wednesday, April 4th at 6:30-7:30 pm at the Wausau Public Library. The Museum is growing fast and is working toward an expansion. Part of the planning involves seeking out ideas on how the Museum can better serve families throughout the entire Central Wisconsin region. The one-hour meeting will be held in the third floor conference room at the Wausau Public Library. Parking is available in the parking garage across the street. The purposes of the focus group are to assess knowledge and perceptions about the Central Wisconsin Children’s Museum and to provide CWCM committees with information needed to make decisions regarding the future direction of the museum.
The Central Wisconsin Children’s Museum is a non-profit family-based discovery place where children and adults play and explore together to strengthen confidence, capabilities, and creativity through hands-on investigation. The Museum opened in May of 1997 and has grown from 6,034 visitors in 2003 to 13,277 visitors in 2006. It is located in the CenterPoint MarketPlace in downtown Stevens Point; hours are Wednesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday noon to 4 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month. Daily admission is $3 per person and free for infants up to 12 months. Call the Museum at 344-2003 or visit www.cwchildrensmuseum.org for more information.
