The children's museum reached the milestone after 17 years

A local museum is celebrating its one millionth visitor. WNIN’s John Gibson has details:

The Children’s Museum of Evansville says it welcomed its one millionth visitor Thursday, 17 years after opening its doors.

cMoe says a woman named Julie and her two grandchildren, ages 7 and 9, were visiting from northern Indiana during the girls’ Fall Break.

A release says they were “surprised and delighted” by the special welcome.

It was their first visit to cMoe.

The museum began as Hands On Discovery in a donated storefront at Washington Square Mall before moving to the 18,000 square foot facility in the former Central Library in Downtown Evansville.
