AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Local parents are hoping to create a children’s museum in Akron to fill a void for indoor, interactive spaces for kids in the city.

The parents, who all have full-time jobs, are about two years into their volunteer museum efforts as they work on feasibility and market studies.

Katie Smith, secretary of the museum’s volunteer board of directors, tells the Akron Beacon Journal for a story Monday (https://bit.ly/13pKnbE ) the group wants to open a pilot site in the next 12 to 18 months to prove the concept and has about three to four options.

The group isn’t talking exact costs yet, with Smith saying a temporary site could cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and a permanent site even more.
