Franklin Children’s Museum Finds a Home

On May 22nd, the Children’s Museum of Franklin announced they signed a lease for 157 Cottage Street in Franklin.
In this space, they plan interactive exhibits for kids 0-10, programming for elementary and middle school students, leadership and volunteer opportunities for high school students and internships for college students. Museum founders expect the space to draw visitors from up to an hour away, something they’ve already seen in their Mobile Museum events.
While working on construction and exhibit design are planned, Franklin Children’s Museum founders will also apply for grants and fundraise, and they hope individuals and sponsors will help them with a lofty goal of $450,000 this fall.
