COMING SOON – Wonder Universe: A Children’s Museum

The Children’s Museum of Blacksburg (CMB) is moving to the New River Valley Mall in Christiansburg.  When it opens at its new home, the museum will be known as Wonder Universe: A Children’s Museum.

In the coming months, the New River Valley Mall food court will be transformed into Wonder Universe with new exhibits designed to inspire playful learning.  Exhibits will reflect a commitment to STEM, our regional heritage, the arts, and more.

Sarah Hanks, Executive Director of the Children’s Museum of Blacksburg, has been leading efforts to “cultivate a museum that equips and empowers kids and families to enjoy the benefits of playful learning.”

Blue Mobius Marketing, Joba Design, and the CMB Board of Directors facilitated rounds of research, brand discovery, brainstorming, and community feedback to develop a name, logo, and brand that represent our community.

The museum will remain open in its current location at First & Main in Blacksburg until the new facility is ready, with a goal of occupying the new space during the winter months.  For more information, visit www.blacksburgchildrensmuseum.org.
