QUINCY — Studio 101, a business hatching space in the Experience Quincy building, has played a pivotal role in providing a prime Maine Street location the Quincy Children’s Museum to thrive.

The success of the museum in Studio 101 has necessitated a move to a larger temporary space as it prepares for an exciting next chapter.

In a press release, Jarid Jones, co-owner of Experience Quincy, said, “After almost nine months in Studio 101, Quincy Children’s Museum has been making incredible strides, and we are proud to have been a part of their journey. As we witnessed the overwhelming response and enthusiastic engagement from families, it became evident that they would soon require more space to accommodate their growing popularity.”

Quincy Children’s Museum will be moving to a larger studio space in The District in the near future, with location information and an opening date to be announced. This move is an exciting step forward while they continue their efforts to raise $10 million through their capital campaign.

These funds will be directed towards the first phase of museum development, culminating in their permanent space located at 230 N. Third, slated to be completed in 2026.

“We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Experience Quincy for providing us with the space to thrive and nurture our vision,” said Amy Peters, executive director of Quincy Children’s Museum. “The support and opportunity afforded by Studio 101 have been instrumental in reaching this pivotal moment in our growth.”

People can still visit Studio 101 through the middle of September during the transition, along with their Satellite Exhibit at the Quincy Art Center which opened Aug. 19 and their other Satellite Exhibit in Quincy Town Center later this fall.
