INK is back open for big-kid business.
Five months after the Interactive Neighborhood For Kids was hit with massive water damage after a kiln fire triggered the building’s sprinkler system.
With the help of staff, volunteers and contractors, the nonprofit museum and family attraction is back in shape. To celebrate, a ribbon cutting and guided tours are planned for 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1, at INK on 999 Chestnut St. SE, No. 11.
“INK has been a mainstay in the community for 16 years, as a venue for children, their families and educators to play, learn, imagine and grow in a safe ‘neighborhood’ environment,” states a press release from INK. “Through play, children are motivated to learn and develop life skills that will shape the adults they will become.”
The rehabilitated museum now includes new banking and manufacturing exhibits thanks to sponsors of the organization.
INK will resume regular hours at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 2.
Regular hours will once again be Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday 1-5 p.m. Admission is $8.00 per person Monday to Saturday and $6.00 per person on Sunday.
