The New Children’s Museum will describe its proposed relocation to UConn’s West Hartford campus in a free public event and television interview. UConn is scheduled to vacate its West Hartford property in 2017.

On Tuesday, January 19, at 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, The New Children’s Museum will offer a presentation and public discussion on its proposed plan to relocate to UConn’s West Hartford property. The proposed plans will focus on creating a family-friendly cultural campus, driving local economic development, and preserving green space. The Museum’s Interim Executive Director, Michael J. Werle, will provide details and drawings of two potential concepts for the campus, followed by an open discussion and a question and answer period. Area residents are encouraged to attend this free public event, which will take place at the West Hartford Senior Center at Bishops Corner.

Michael Werle was recently interviewed by Barbara Lerner, Executive Director of the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce. As a prelude to public event on January 19, Mr. Werle and Ms. Lerner discussed an overview of the relocation plans and why the Museum is important to the community. This interview will air on West Hartford Community TV (Channel 5) at 9:00 PM on January 6, 13, and 20.
