New children's museum opens in Findlay

FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Fans of Imagination Station now a new place to play and learn in Findlay.

"Little Main Street,"a new, interactive children's museum, opened its doors inside the Findlay Village Mall on Friday.

The museum is a first of its kinds for the city of Findlay. The creators say, the motivation behind it was simple and a group effort.

"It's a group of young parents, and we wanted something to do with our kids," said Executive Director Erin Poling. "We wanted a place to bring them, an education place, that we can interact with our children outside of just the daily home and work environment."

The children's museum has 12 exhibits and most of them were sponsored by local businesses.

Each play area incorporates some aspect of the S.T.E.A.M. Curriculum, an acronym for science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.

Poling said, 'It's a good way for kids to discover what they're interests are, so they can focus that learning at school to see what they're good at and what skills they want to develop."

Little Main Street offers a variety of interactive games to stimulate the minds of kids ages birth through 10 years old.

Admission will cost $6.50 for adults and $4.50 for children. 

Ultimately, the owners hope to relocate the museum to downtown Findlay.
Families can now stop by its location inside Findlay village mall, across from Joann Fabrics.
