Children's Museum of Southern Minnesota facts for kids
|Established||1 May 2015|
A group of educators began efforts to open a children's museum in 2009. In the summer of 2014, flood waters damaged the museum's planned exhibits. After rebuilding the exhibits, CMSM opened on the 1st of May, 2015.
The chosen site of the museum required extensive cleanup in partnership with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. With funding from a grant, over 2,500 tons of polluted soil and waste were removed. The existing building was made safe for renovation and use.
