NEW KIDS' MUSEUM
EXPLORIS—The merger of kid-friendly powerhouses Playspace and Exploris spurred the creation of a new children's museum in Wake County, the newest addition to the family art and education scene. Located at the Exploris downtown, the Museum will holds its grand opening from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. with children's band Sandbox Band, food, clowns, magicians and—lest we forget—educational activities. You'll have to attend the event to be the first to learn the name of the museum. For more, call 857-1021. —Karlie Justus
