NEW YORK (AP) - A new children’s museum is opening in Harlem.

The Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art and Storytelling is opening Saturday. It’s part of a subsidized housing complex called Sugar Hill Development.

The housing development consists of 124 apartments for low-income and formerly homeless families.

The museum will offer exhibits, art-making workshops for children and story-telling series.

It will present inaugural exhibitions in partnership with neighboring institutions El Museo del Barrio and The Studio Museum in Harlem.

Director Susan Delvalle says the museum is intended as “a welcoming space” for children of all communities to come together to tell their stories.

Sugar Hill was developed by Broadway Housing Communities and designed by London-based architect David Adjaye (AD’-jay).
