Quincy Children’s Museum announces satellite exhibit at Quincy Town Center beginning Friday
QUINCY — The Quincy Children’s Museum will have a six-week satellite exhibit experience will be held beginning Friday, Nov. 11, at a space directly across from Kirlin’s in Quincy Town Center. The exhibit will be open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.-noon and from 4-7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday hours are noon-5 p.m. The experience is free and open to the public.
Reservations are required for the first week of the exhibit and can be made on the Quincy Children’s Museum website, https://www.quincychildrensmuseum.org. The remaining five weeks will be open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis. The space is limited to 15 children at a time in one-hour increments.
In a press release, Quincy Children’s Museum executive director Amy Peters said, “The support we have received over the past three years has been incredible. Our community events have slowed down for the year, and our first satellite experience at the Quincy Public Library comes to a close on Nov. 1. With this experience, we will continue the momentum and demand to bring our mission to life.”
Renovations are underway at the museum’s permanent location at 230 N. Third.
