The Children’s Museum of Sonoma County has been awarded a $10,000 grant by Wells Fargo.
The gift will be used for indoor exhibits on science, nature and the arts for the new museum.
The museum is campaigning to raise $1.8 million to finish its indoor exhibits and upgrade its site at 1835 W. Steele Lane in Santa Rosa .
It also recently received a grant from California Parks and Recreation for outdoor exhibits and improvements on the four-acre lot.
The museum is expected to open in late 2013.
Currently, the Children’s Museum of Sonoma County reaches over 10,000 children and their caregivers each year through ‘Museum-on-the-Go’ community events, school outreach programs, and special events and birthday parties held at the site.
