Local News

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – There’s now a timeframe in place for re-opening the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire.

The museum will re-open in 2022 at its new location on North Barstow Street. It had shut down when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and had re-opened at the start of July. However, one month later, the Children’s Museum of Eau Claire shut down indefinitely.

In a statement, Executive Director Mike Mchorney says the Children’s Museum’s projected operating losses were 119-thousand dollars, or more if it re-opens in January of 2021.

The children’s museum will operate in a mobile form until the 2022 re-opening.
