MANSFIELD, OH, May 23, 2022 – On Monday, May 23, 2022, downtown Mansfield’s Little Buckeye Children’s Museum announced that it will be changing its name to Buckeye Imagination Museum.
“Little Buckeye Children's Museum is evolving. We are changing our name, but not our vision, mission, or commitment to the community. We will continue be a safe and fun place for your family to play,” says Fred Boll, Executive Director.
The name change comes at a time when the beloved children’s museum is preparing to move into its new 30,000 square foot building located just two blocks away at 175 West Third Street in downtown Mansfield’s Imagination District beside the Renaissance Theatre.
“Little Buckeye isn't ‘little’ anymore!” says Operations Manager, Shawnda Schneider, “With our move to a bigger building, we decided it was time that Little Buckeye Children's Museum grow up – right alongside your kids!”
Boll explains, “We know kids don't always like being called ‘little.’ And since play is good for kids of all ages, we decided to change our name, so your kids feel more comfortable playing with us.”
Little Buckeye Children’s Museum, now Buckeye Imagination Museum, will be moving out of their rented West Fourth Street location later this year. Follow them on Facebook to stay up-to-date and get notified of their moving date. Customers will find that the new building houses all of their favorite exhibits, plus some new ones, and will also come with the added benefits of a dedicated parking lot and a working elevator. And Members can rest assured, any Little Buckeye Children’s Museum memberships, gift certificates, and passes will continue to be honored as normal.

“We are so grateful for the support of our donors, members, and the whole community,” says Museum Manager, Suzanna Roemer, “We cannot wait to share our new space with you and continue to provide a fun, safe and enriching place to play!”
