- KidSenses Children's InterACTIVE Museum History
The concept of KidSenses Children’s INTERACTIVE Museum began as one person’s dream, which, when shared with other creative minds in a very special community, grew and grew into a reality that has exceeded everyone’s expectations. Located in the heart of downtown Rutherfordton, NC, our building was originally constructed in 1927 and has been home to a car dealership and later a “Five and Dime” store before being refurbished as a completely hands-on environment. Since opening in 2004, KidSenses has welcomed over 500,000 visitors to our 10,000 square-foot space, which features 12 different interactive exhibit areas, curriculum-based workshops for field trip groups, a 7,500 square foot Children’s Garden (open seasonally), and unique opportunities to stimulate the imagination and educate the mind.
