BASTON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The Knock Knock Children’s Museum has received a $100,000 donation from CN Railroad to help fund learning zones at the museum planned at Baton Rouge City Park.

A fundraising campaign has been underway to pay for up to 20 activity spaces that will serve as interactive exhibits focused on southeast Louisiana.

In March, Dow Louisiana Operations gave $200,000 for a “Fish Tales” learning zone.

The board of the nonprofit museum has raised more than $6 million for the planned 30,000-square-foot facility.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Recreation and Park Commission is leading the construction process.
