There have been lots of changes and improvements going on at the Utica Children's Museum. Looks like it's time for a trip with the kids to see what's new.

To start with, the Utica Children's Museum is under new management and adding new stuff to do every week. Trina Gigliotti has been working to bring new ideas and new partnerships into the museum, to make it a rewarding experience for both children and parents.
