YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) — The OH WOW! Children’s museum in downtown Youngstown is growing.

The center says it’s buying the Historic McCrory Building next door.

Right now, there are 11 galleries with 60 hands-on exhibits.

With the new space, the museum will be able to stretch out and host more traveling exhibits.

Expansion has been the goal for years.

“This was all a part of the master plan and I’m thrilled to say that we’ve achieved it a little bit earlier than we anticipated,” said President of OH WOW!, Suzanne Barbati

OH WOW! opened in 2011 and has had almost a half-a-million visitors.
