Be part of the birth
of a wonderful new place for kids:
Establishing a new children's museum is a very special opportunity.
Kids 'N Stuff (KNS) will be a regional children's museum serving
children and families of South-Central Michigan with high-quality
interactive exhibits and educational, cultural and artistic programming.
an important part of the "Smart Community," KNS will
help revitalize the downtown district and be a showcase for Albion's
focus on information technology.
We're already off to
a fast start:
KNS has made significant
and rapid progress since its inception in the spring of 2000.
Tom Feldpausch, local businessman and civic leader, donated a
11,000-square-foot building (formerly the Penney's store) to
KNS, and $300,000 has been raised toward a $600,000 goal. Achieving
the goal will enable us to completely renovate the building,
including full barrier-free access, to construct permanent exhibits,
and to provide for the first two years of operation.
We need the help of
Support from Albion citizens and local businesses will help make
this project a reality. Our goal of $35,000 for the Greater Albion
Area. Kids 'N Stuff will be a major resource for our community,
with 80% of our children living within walking or bicycling distance.
KNS plans to work with the Albion Public Schools to enrich the
K-8 curriculum, with KNS exhibits and programming. Albion College
faculty members have volunteered to assist with special programs.
KNS holds great promise for the future. Consider joining one
