Rochester Location

Rochester Museum Closes in February for Move to Apache Mall

Minnesota Children’s Museum of Rochester is planning to move this summer into a bigger space at Apache Mall just outside downtown Rochester.

The museum, which will remain open at its current location through Feb. 16, 2020, plans to re-open in summer 2020.

The expanded museum will have a new name: Spark. When the Rochester location re-opens, Spark will become a separate organization from Minnesota Children’s Museum.

Will Minnesota Children’s Museum members get free admission in Rochester?

Yes. Existing members and those who purchase a Passport or above membership before Jan. 31, 2020, will receive free admission to the new Spark play space in Rochester through the term of their annual membership or until Jan. 31, 2021, whichever date comes first.

What happens if I buy or renew a membership right now?

Anyone who buys or renews a membership by Jan. 31, 2020, will receive free admission to the new Spark play space in Rochester through the term of their annual membership or until Jan. 31, 2021, whichever date comes first.

Starting Feb. 1, 2020, newly purchased and renewed memberships at Minnesota Children’s Museum will not include free admission to the Rochester play space.

Anyone who renews or buys a new Minnesota Children’s Museum membership after Feb. 1 will receive a 50 percent discount at Spark via the Association of Children’s Museums network.
