Children's museum planning Oro Valley branch

ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

One of Tucson's most popular attractions is planning to branch out.  Children's Museum Tucson tells Tucson News Now it is creating a satellite location in Oro Valley.

Plans are still coming together, but it's moving ahead with help from $200,000 set aside in Oro Valley's new budget.  The museum is also kicking in $200,000, and both the town and the museum hope to raise $200,000 over the coming months.

"We are excited by the prospect of bringing a children's museum to Oro Valley families and creating a space that stimulates curiosity and motivates learning," says Michael Luria, Executive Director of the museum.  "Though there is much work to be done, the recent passage of the 2015 Oro Valley budget that appropriated funds towards the creation of a satellite location is a major milestone. We look forward to having more details on this exciting project as the summer progresses."
