The Manitoba Children's Museum has received a crucial donation as it nears the homestretch of a complete overhaul of its facilities.
Philanthropists John and Bonnie Buhler, presented museum officials with a gift of $800,000 today.
The donation, the largest in the museum's nearly 25-year history, will support the construction of the Buhler Welcome Centre.
When the museum reopens June 4, the welcome centre will provide guests with upgraded admission amenities and visitor services.
"This was such an amazing gift," said Janet McLeod, director of development at the museum. "It enabled us to go about with our internal plans and increase our number of galaries from six to 12."
