Boiler failure shuts down Wonderscope museum until Feb. 4

January 28, 2011

Wonderscope Children’s Museum had to close unexpectedly due to mechanical problems with the boiler in the building, the museum announced today.

All classes, programs, events and scheduled activities at the museum, 5700 King St. in Shawnee, are cancelled through Feb. 4.

Since the boiler is not working, the temperature inside the museum is not adequate for guests. After identifying the problem, crews are working to fix the unit.

Museum staff hopes to resume regular museum hours and activities beginning Feb. 5. For updates, visit
