Houston Children’s Museum is growing and growing

My sweet pal Sara loves exploring Houston and said this about her recent trip to the Houston Children’s Museum:

I love going to the Houston Children’s Museum with my 3-year old niece. She loves the colors and the hands-on policy….we run around playing with everything that catches her eye (which is roughly every 30 seconds).

She loves painting and the fact that she’s allowed to touch everything and explore to her heart’s content.
So last week when I took her for another trip, I was thrilled to learn that the museum has just gotten a $35 million dollar approval for expansion that’s expected to double the size of the museum. I can barely keep up with my niece in its current space so it’ll be an adventure running around in the expected 47,000 square foot expansion.

It turns out that the current capacity should be catering to 350,000 visitors per year but the actual number of those visiting has been estimated at 600,000! Mark your calenders for a 2009 opening of the new and improved museum.

The Chronicle reported on this expansion here. Should be completely rocking! Is it weird that I love kids’ museums even though I’m 24? Thanks Sara!
