Knock Knock Children's Museum breaking ground next week
BATON ROUGE - The Knock Knock Children's Museum will finally break ground next week after more than a decade of raising money.
The East Baton Rouge Parish Recreation and Park Commission and the nonprofit Knock Knock board of directors have secured a contractor to build the museum, which was designed to sit on a sloped hill near City-Brooks Community Park.
The official groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled to take place Wednesday.
BREC leaders and others have dreamed for years about the Knock Knock Children's Museum, envisioned to host between 18 and 20 hands-on learning exhibits.
Organizers hoped to break ground in summer 2014, but the date was pushed back to this year.
While waiting, more money has continued to roll in for the museum's interior learning zones.
