Kidzeum is becoming a reality!
Construction will start on or before July 1, 2017 thanks to Springfield Mayor Jim Langfelder and the City Council. The Alderman approved additional TIF funding that will allow O'Shea Builders to bring out the hard hats.
We will host a Construction Kick-Off on June 29, 2017 at 2:00pm in front of the Kidzeum building at 412 E. Adams Street. A recepetion at Cafe Moxo will follow. Bring your kids so they can help with out balloon release! The Adams block between 4th and 5th will be closed to allow for kids to explore rescue and construction vehicles as well as participate in bubble blasting activities....kids might get messy!
