UTICA – Officials with the Utica Children’s Museum have been getting inquiries from people asking if they’re moving from their landmark building at 311 Main Street.

Steve Bulger – executive director of Kids Oneida, which oversees the museum – says that’s not going to happen right now, but anything is possible.

Bulger says they’ve put together a national advisory board to see what other, larger museums are doing to attract and engage kids across the country.

"We’re keeping all options on the table," Bulger said. "And one option that we do feel, at this point, is really maintaining the status quo at the museum as we know it right now, isn't necessarily an option for us."

The Children’s Museum will be recognized next week at the National Children’s Museum Conference for the relationship between the museum and Kids Oneida – a child welfare agency and a museum.
