Children’s museum celebrates, ‘everyday heroes’
Police officers, firefighters honored
–Everyday heroes of Paso Robles were recognized at the Paso Robles Children’s Museum Saturday, June 25. Members of the Paso Robles Department of Emergency Services and Paso Robles Police Department participated in a day-long event to help kids make connections with local heroes.
Firefighters and officers provided tours of the equipment, explained their job duties in our community, told stories, and answered questions from the children.
The museum, a non-profit organization, is located in the old Volunteer Fire Station on 13th Street. It was established as a public charity in 2003 and opened its doors in November 2007. Since then, they have welcomed over 140,000 visitors, including 12,000 elementary students who participate in education programs provided by the museum.
The Children’s Museum has partnered with the Central Coast Autism Spectrum Center and Jack’s Helping Hands, two groups that provide services to kids with special needs and their families. ThemMuseum opens once a month to provide free, private play-time for the children, which allows them to play in a judgement free space and parents an opportunity to provide a safe learning environment for their kids.
