Julie Johnson is the new Director of the Detroit Children's Museum under its new association with the Detroit Science Center. Julie will be blogging her thoughts as she works toward the reopening of this Detroit institution! Here is her second post:
This past week has been very exciting. I have been planning our 3 open houses for the the Detroit Children's Museum and our Grand Opening. I have several groups signed up for entertainment for the Grand Opening in June and we are on our way getting organized for our summer programs for families and children. I am in the process of recruiting volunteers for the DCM. If you are interested in volunteering and are over the age of 16 please go to the Detroit Science Center website and check out our volunteer programs.
Our Open Houses will be March 21, April 24, and May 22 from 11am-3pm. You will receive free admission to the Children's Museum and be able to explore our exhibits, speak to staff about changes, and see our plans for our new exhibits. We are looking forward to seeing you this spring.
BTW-Some of you have asked if "Silverbolt" the horse is still at DCM. Yes, he will be back once we open.
Have a great week everyone.
