Boca Raton Children’s Museum closed, to reopen spring


If you are looking to take your children to the Boca Raton Children’s Museum, you will have to wait until spring time.

The museum is temporarily closed.

In December, the decision to close the museum temporarily was made after the operator, the Florence Fuller Child Development Center discussed an operation, ownership and management transition with the City of Boca Raton.

When the museum reopens, it will be managed by the City’s Recreation Services Department.

While the museum is closed, the city will assess and evaluate the buildings, grounds, programming, exhibits and financial position.

The Florence Fuller Child Development Center managed and operated the museum for the past five years with help from volunteers. The nonprofit struggled to make the museum a self-sustaining entity.
