Northeast Texas Childrens Museum Grand Opening

The time is here!

The streets have been painted; Amazing Airways is installed; and the businesses are ready to open.  Children are now needed to complete the scene at the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum.  Children and families are invited to the Grand Opening on Saturday, October 26 from 9:30 to 4:30 at 100 Maple Street.

 The Grand Opening will feature a new look for Main Street with detailed replicas of many local businesses.  As Project Manager and Designer, Beckey Thompson has created a professional look with color detail for each of the businesses on Main Street.  These businesses include Hunt Regional Healthcare, Family Smiles Dental, Brookshire’s Grocery, Lone Star Eatery, Commerce Veterinary Clinic, and the playhouse sponsored by Mandy Stewart with RE-Max and Cliff and Brooke Jones with Castlerock Customer Builders.  “With the expertise of Beckey Thompson as Project Manager and Designer, the Children’s Museum’s Main Street reflects a professional and talented builder.   I do not know how or what would have been accomplished without Beckey “, said Sharline Freeman, Executive Director of the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum.   

Visitors can look forward to experiencing Amazing Airways, a large exhibit sponsored by Charles Schwab of Greenville.  Amazing Airways is an exhibit that is found in only fifty-five museums throughout the United States.  The internationally acclaimed original Amazing Airways is an impressive pneumatic air system that will engage children and adults as they explore the properties of air. 

Andrew Baldwin of Terrell, Texas, is enjoying the new Amazing Airways exhibit at the new site of the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum.

Other new exhibits and refurbished previous exhibits will provide a creative, hands-on experience for all visitors.  Main Street will feature a road and gas station.  Each business on Main Street has become a four-sided building with a high level of realism in the design.  New furnishings create a new experience for children.  The Grand Opening on October 26 brings a new era to the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum.  One of the best children’s venues in the state can now be found in Commerce, Texas.
