OH WOW! Children’s Center will reopen to the public on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at 9:00am in the historic McCrory Building, with a new entrance at 15 Central Square.
OH WOW! began Phase 1 of a multi-million dollar renovation in January 2021, growing and evolving in the center of Youngstown, with the assistance of CambridgeSeven and Murphy Contracting. The new vision for this initial phase reorganizes overall visitor circulation and creates a dramatic new entrance and welcoming lobby on Central Square. Several new exhibit galleries are being introduced into the revised layout, along with several old favorites that are being rejuvenated and relocated. The proposed renovation will transform the existing space with a whole new colorful look and feel.
OH WOW! will be open to the public on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with two sessions offered each of these days: 9:00am-11:00am and 12:00pm-2:00pm. Registration to visit OH WOW! is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED. Members and general admission guests are asked to register at ohwowkids.org, and clicking on the “ticket” button. Cost of admission is the same: Members are free, General Admission is $8.00, Children under 2 free and Veterans, Seniors and Educators are $7. Group rates are available. Please call 330-744-5914 for additional information or questions.
