As the DuPage Children’s Museum plans to say hello again to patrons in their original space, they hope not to say goodbye to a location they’ve grown to love.
The popular Naperville museum is preparing to open their doors for business this summer after a burst water pipe shut down operations back in January.
During clean up, the museum opened a 3,000 square foot outpost in the Westfield Fox Valley Mall, to serve patrons in the interim.
The idea went over so well, they’d like to see it continue. Currently museum officials are spearheading a campaign to raise money through grants and other sources to keep the DCM @ The mall location running permanently.
“We’re so excited about the positive response we’ve gotten, the foundation we met with really saw this as an incredible opportunity and enrichment experience,” said Sarah Orleans, President & CEO of DuPage Children’s Museum.
The tally on cleanup and repairs to the museum itself has now reached at least $3 million.
