ST. GEORGE — Despite a flooding incident in one room of the St. George Children’s Museum earlier this month, the museum remains open and functioning.
Workers have been restoring the sports room, which suffered a flood on April 9 from a broken fire sprinkler after a child threw a ball at it.
At the time of the flood, Executive Director Marnie Workman said it would cost thousands of dollars to restore.
However, the museum never completely closed. Only the sports room was closed as it was restored, Executive Director Anita Wotkyns said.
“We’ve been working hand-in-hand with the city to restore the room,” Wotkyns said. “It’ll be back open in a week or so.”
The museum has recently been less crowded in recent weeks after the spring-break crowds left, Wotkyns said.
In the meantime, there are several events to keep guests occupied at the St. George Children’s Museum, including the following
- “Music Time” every Tuesday at 11 a.m.
- “Storytime” every Wednesday at 11:30
- “Arts and Crafts with Mary” and every Thursday at 11 a.m.
The museum, which is open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., is also free every first Thursday of every month. Admission prices on the rest of the days are $5 per person above the age of 2.
