In June 2014, the Children’s Discovery Museum was approved to be the new tenant of the Mendel building. The Children’s Museum plans to develop a world-class, multi-purpose space to provide public programming and experiential learning opportunities where children and families will have fun.
The Children’s Discovery Museum’s mission is to foster creativity, curiosity, and a lifelong love of learning in children 12 and under through hands-on exhibits, programming and outreach. It is a unique organization that brings together children, families and community in meaningful interactions, developing essential skills and sparking creativity.
The project includes a partnership between the City and the Children’s Museum to ensure that the Mendel Building is animated and that it is connected it to the PotashCorp Playland at Kinsmen Park through priority-driven, targeted programming.
Currently the timeline is that the “new” Children’s Discovery Museum will open in early 2017. In February an Open House was offered to the public to view details about the new building. For more details on concept plans & upcoming events – check out their website at: (http://museumforkids.sk.ca/):
