The Journey to the New expERIEnce Children’s Museum Begins!

Construction has begun in the Outdoor Classroom as Phase 1 of the build begins. Phase 1 is estimated to finish Spring of 2023!

Please note that as construction continues, parking along the left side of 5th Street is no longer available in front of the museum. There is street parking on the North end of the 5th Street block where the museum is located. On the weekends, Erie Insurance graciously allows us to use their parking lot directly across from the museum. The museum is still fully operational and the front door is available via the sidewalk and new ramp installed to the left of the entrance.
