Smiles were everywhere to be seen on Wednesday as the new Buckeye Imagination Museum officially opened its doors to the public.

The new facility, located next to the Renaissance Theatre, has been in the planning stages for years. Speaking about the Museum, Fred Boll, Executive Director, said “We are excited to welcome guests into our new facility, which we feel will better serve them. Our new building features a zero-level entrance and an elevator which allows us to be more accessible. It also has a parking a lot, which will be much more convenient to our guests.” 

According to the Museum, “Buckeye Imagination Museum, which was part of a joint capital campaign with the Renaissance Performing Arts Association, originally purchased its new building in late 2018. Before that the building had sat vacant for roughly 15 years. Since being purchased, the building has received a new roof, new windows, new HVAC system, new electrical work, new parking lot, and completely remodeled bathrooms and flooring. Repairs were also made to the elevator.
