The Galveston Children’s Museum, on the first floor of the Moody Mansion, features exhibits grouped in zones. The July 10 soft launch will see the museum opening for its fully operational hours. It will open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, noon to 4 p.m. Sundays and will be closed on Mondays. The soft launch will help the museum to iron out any kinks in its operations.
The museum, a resource to extend the arts and STEM (science, technology, engineering math) education of Galveston children, has received a $300,000 grant from the Moody Foundation.
