Science Museum to Tanglewood Mall in Roanoke

Looks like Tanglewood Mall will benefit from the renovations at Center in the Square in downtown Roanoke. Here's the press release from the museum:

The Science Museum of Western Virginia will continue operations at a Tanglewood Mall location for the duration of Center in the Square’s renovation efforts. The new location on the upper level, next to Payless Shoes, will allow the museum to continue public hours and to offer access to favorite exhibits and services such as day camps, birthday parties and regular educational programs. The museum opening date in this new location is June 14th.

J. Andree Brooks, interim executive director, said “Our educational programs are the true purpose of the Science Museum, and being able to continue meeting our mission goals during this period is the most important focus. We are looking forward to opportunities for summer camp, special Science Saturdays, and other unique events at Tanglewood.”

Tanglewood recently became of Miller-Mott, a college, and the museum is likely to  bring still more mall rats in.
