KidsQuest Children’s Museum is scheduled to open its doors January 31st in its new location in downtown Bellevue at the corner of NE 12th Street and 108th Avenue NE (the former Rosalie Whyle Museum of Doll Art).
If you never had an opportunity to visit the museum’s former Factoria location, this is a “must do” activity for parents and children. The museum’s indoor and outdoor hands-on interactive exhibits are designed for exploration and experimentation with a focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math. If you’ve driven by lately the big rig truck cab is visible through the windows on the north side of the building. There are also three classrooms and an art studio with a kiln.
The museum isn’t just for kids – KidsQuest will continue to offer their popular “Recess on the Rocks” – after hours access for adults to enjoy the exhibits and activities accompanied by food and cocktails. You must be 21+ to play. The museum is also available to rent for evening events and dinners.
Downtown is Bellevue’s fastest growing neighborhood with new apartments and condos scheduled to break ground this year. What’s happening – and what’s about to happen – in downtown Bellevue’s real estate entertainment scene? I live and work in downtown Bellevue – contact me to find out what’s planned for 2017.
