BATON ROUGE - The Knock Knock Children's Museum announced Wednesday that CN railroad donated $100,000 to help organizer make the long-planned museum a reality.

Knock Knock board members said the gift will help advance the early literacy and educational mission of the children's museum, which has been in the works for several years.

The museum is planned to be built in BREC's City - Brooks Community Park facing Dalrymple Drive. The museum will be 30,000 square feet and feature 18 - 20 hands-on interactive exhibits for children up to age eight.

Museum organizers raised $6 million last year for their construction budget, which is when they began approaching groups to sponsor individual exhibits.
