Barrie Children’s Museum Hopes To Partner With City

Would help teach local history to kids

Barrie City Council Monday night heard about a plan to develop a museum devoted to children. The proposed museum would help educate kids ages 1-12 about the history of the region – from before First Nations settled, through to modern times – through hands-on, physically active exhibits. The Barrie Children’s Museum is the brain child of Smart Moves Play Place in the south end of Barrie, and Collingwood-based Elephant Thoughts, a charity devoted to science education. Elephant Thoughts Executive Director Jeremy Rhodes says while they try to make it fun, there’s plenty to take away from this one. Jeremy Rhodes, is the Executive Director at  Elephant Thoughts says it would be a place to learn, in a physically active way…

Rhodes and the others are hoping Council might partner with to make the Museum a reality.
