MACON, Ga. (AP) - The Georgia Children’s Museum in downtown Macon is closing.

The museum’s executive director, Mary Cay McCullough, said the museum will close at the end of this week.

The Telegraph reports (https://bit.ly/LwottY) that the museum opened in 2005, and has been part of recent revitalization efforts in Macon’s downtown area.

The museum’s operators had sold the building housing the museum to a developer about a year ago, and loft apartments are being built. Museum officials had planned to continue the museum on the ground floor, but announced this week that it will close instead.

McCullough said the museum doesn’t have the funding or the support “to expand the exhibits the way we need to to keep things fresh and new.”
