BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Construction continues at the Knock Knock Children’s Museum going up near Baton Rouge City Park. But the opening date has been pushed back until sometime this summer after being hit with heavy rain and flood-related delays.

Project manager Melissa Bell tells The Advocate (https://bit.ly/2eqRTZe) the precise opening date of the facility is not yet set.

The museum broke ground more than a year, ago and officials had previously predicted construction would be finished by the end of 2016. But Aza Bowlin, chairwoman of the board of directors, said heavy rain since the groundbreaking in April 2015 hampered some of the work at the site.

The museum will feature “learning zones” spread out over 30,000 square feet, engaging children across various topics, from visual arts to engineering.
