Hanson

Children’s museum

Continue reading below

The Hanson Children’s Museum finally has a home, at least for now. Since Aug. 5, the museum has been operating out of rent-free space in the Sears wing at Hanover Mall, occupying a vacant storefront. Founded in 2009, the museum until now has lacked a facility, and has had to bring its exhibits to libraries, schools, and other venues. The museum had hoped to create a permanent facility out of storage space leased in a Hanson warehouse, but it lacked the funds for renovations and vacated the space in 2011, according to the group’s director, Juvelyn Hartweg. She said the mall has agreed to provide the museum with rent-free space at least for the next several months. During that time, the museum hopes to generate enough revenue through grants, functions, and admission fees to begin paying a lease, allowing it to make the location permanent. The museum is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays through Saturdays. Admission is $3.
