Children and parents gathered Thursday for the official grand-opening of the LaunchPAD Children's Museum in downtown Sioux City.

This project has been in the making for 12 years. The museum is an educational and interactive experience, where children can get their creative juices flowing.

Exhibits feature elements of the world around us, with themes of water, wind, and building.

Bob Fitch, the Executive Director of LaunchPAD said that "It's just a fantastic feeling to be able to open this to the greater Siouxland area, uh it's just gonna be a tremendous asset for the kids and for families and grandparents. Kids are absolutely are gonna love it, they're gonna have a ton of fun and uh they're gonna learn something along the way."

LaunchPAD has year-round opportunities, such as exhibits and programs, for children 6 months to 10 years old.
