“A museum provides the perfect addition to downtown. It is the type of destination business that has the ability to provide education and entertainment to residents and visitors while generating business for existing restaurants and other complimentary businesses. While there are other children’s museums in Massachusetts, it would be a unique addition to the North Shore.”

- Mayor Bettencourt
