We've Sold Our Building!
New director helps lead Children’s Museum from downtown Portland to Thompson’s Point
On Tuesday, October 15th, we sold our building to the Portland Museum of Art, allowing us to make progress on our upcoming move to Thompson’s Point, and giving the PMA room to expand! We will stay where we are (with the PMA as our new landlords) for up to 20 months while we build our new home.
