UTICA, N.Y. – The Utica Children’s Museum is relocating to the Memorial Parkway, in what will be a new state-of-the-art facility, according to Integrated Community Alternatives Network (ICAN).

Funds ICAN received through a Regional Economic Development Council award in 2018 are going toward this new project.

“The museum's relocation will allow for the transformation from an antiquated museum space to a modernized childhood learning center. This new facility will provide a more centralized location to create a state-of-the-art family center. A center to be the first of its kind in the country.” said Steve Bulger, ICAN executive director.

ICAN entered into a managed services contract with the Children’s Museum in October of 2017.

The museum will suspend operations at the end of March, but will open a mobile museum in the summer.

ICAN and the museum are working with a Florida planning firm to design the new museum, which is slated to open in the spring of 2022.

Mohawk Valley Gardens is in the processing of purchasing the current museum building in Bagg’s Square.
