ROTHSCHILD, Wis. (WSAW) - A place for children to learn and play is now open in the Cedar Creek Mall in Rothschild. The Greater Wausau Children’s Museum was previously located in the Wausau Center Mall.

“We are seeing families that we haven’t seen for a year and a half, said Co-Founder and Executive Director Shelly Bovet, “to see those kids having grown up in the last year, is really special for us.”

According to Bovet, the museum has doubled its space from its previous location which gives them more opportunity to grow.

“We’ve been working with some children’s museum designers and we have some really big plans in the future,” said Bovet.

It’s now located in the former Thelma’s location. It opened Tuesday.

Thelma’s moved into the location previously occupied by Dress Barn.

The museum is open Tuesday-Thursday 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. It’s closed Mondays.

The Cedar Creek Mall is located at 10101 Market Street in Rothschild. The museum is located at Suite D70.
