The Children’s Museum of Richmond in Fredericksburg set to open Saturday, May 10th
April 16, 2014
The Children’s Museum of Richmond has announced that the highly anticipated CMoR Fredericksburg branch will open to the public on Saturday, May 10th.
Karen Coltrane, President and CEO of CMoR said, “Thanks to the generosity of the Fredericksburg community, we will be able to open the doors to the new museum in a month. We are so grateful to the many families and organizations that have partnered with us to bring our services to the area.”
Over the next four weeks, CMoR will begin releasing additional information regarding the museum’s design and the specifics of the museum’s exhibits.
CMoR Fredericksburg will be located in Eagle Village at 1275 Jefferson Davis Highway in Fredericksburg. Eagle Village is located at the former Park & Shop retail center near the intersection of U.S. Route 1 and College Avenue and is owned and managed by the University of Mary Washington Foundation. This will be the museum’s fourth branch. The other three are located in the Richmond area.
Coltrane said, “We are especially grateful for our partnership with the local organization, Explore It!, that formed to execute the idea of a children’s museum in Fredericksburg. Without their hard work nurturing the concept, it would not have happened this quickly. We can’t wait to welcome Fredericksburg area families to the museum and are looking forward to becoming an integral part of the Fredericksburg community.”
