New Children's Museum Proposed for Las Cruces

An interactive children’s museum emphasizing science themes could see construction in Las Cruces if all the needed funding is secured.

The project, advanced by a group called the Early Childhood Coalition, as well as the Las Cruces-based Ngage New Mexico, an education advocacy group, would see the initial construction of a 4,000 to 10,000 square-foot museum and learning hub with at least 30 individual interactive exhibits.

Second phase construction, according to city documents, would add up to 40,000 square feet housing a theater, classrooms, and one hundred interactive exhibits.

A site for the project has not yet been announced, but organizers for the museum have already launched a fund-raising drive for its construction.
