The Board for the proposed Children's Museum of the Black Hills is halfway to achieving their funding goals, reports the Rapid City Journal.
The museum is seeking to round out their "Founding 50" which will be a group of individuals, businesses and organizations that are willing to donate at least $1,000 in funding. The first 50 to donate will be recognized on a plaque that will be hung in the museum. Board President Lily Bruckner, who teaches a masters program at the National American University, says that talks about this kind of museum have been underway for the last 5 or 6 years, but the first official meeting happened last June. The goal is to create a place where families can come to "learn together" and "embrace their inner-kid."
