MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The ribbon cutting ceremony for the Mississippi Children’s Museum of Meridian, or MCM Meridian, was held today to set up for the Grand Opening this weekend. This has been a five-year project supported by local and state volunteers and donors. MCM will be ninety-five hundred square feet of fun and educational activities and is the only museum in America with a life size “Goodnight Moon” set.

The museum will provide fun and an educational place for children from all over Mississippi and is expected to have a large impact impact economically, as well.

Meridian Mayor Percy Bland said, “More activity for our city means more development, more jobs, and more opportunity. So we are very excited to have our own children’s museum here in Meridian.”

MCM-Meridian will have an estimated 3 million dollar annual impact on Meridian and will employ around 25 full-time employees.

Tickets for the Grand Opening are ten dollars and must be purchased in advance at
