The museum's education director Emily Stone said, “we’ve had a Curiosity Center for years that’s been a big favorite with families on rainy days and during snowy weather, and now it just got even better.”

Many of the upgrades involve the new two-story tree house. “Once they climb the tree, they can go out on one branch and launch a flying squirrel on a zip line, and they can go out on the other branch and down a slide and then across the climbing wall," Stone said. "There’s so much to do and explore, and it’s really durable and fun and colorful.”

The expanded play area is now open to the public, but the grand opening celebration will be on May 25th. That's also when they'll be voting on potential names for the mechanical flying squirrel.
