You know the Nashville skyline well, but what if we told you a new development, unlike the ones you see here, is on the horizon? Cue, the Music City Children’s Museum.

Local educators formed The Children’s Museum Development Group in 2015 with hopes to build a world-class space for Nashville’s youth to explore rotating and permanent exhibits across topics like performing arts, healthcare, and agriculture — just to name a few.

Flash forward to today, the group has kicked off a campaign to raise awareness for the 80,000-sqft facility to be built by Memphis-based children’s museum architects Haizlip Studio.

According to Bruce Libbon, Vice President of The Children’s Museum Development Group, “Research shows that Nashville is by far the largest market in the US without a children’s museum targeted to younger children.”
