A children’s museum has been planned for the last four years, and Saturday, it celebrated moving into a home.
The Wise Wonders Children’s Museum held a soft opening at 110 North 29th Street.
Saturday is also Pi Day, which celebrates the Greek letter Pi used in math.
The museum displayed a digit for the number, which has an infinite number of digits to the right of the decimal point.
Four digits past the decimal gives the number 3.1415, today’s date.
Shari Bonini donated the building for 2015 and the museum can start leasing it in 2016.
The museum started as a project of the Junior League of Billings.
“It’s been a dream come true,” said Kelli Toohill, president of the Wise Wonders Children’s Museum board. “But I know the journey’s not over. We hope to have bigger and better exhibits. We’ve got a running tally of pi, where all the kids were coloring Pi numbers. You know it’s an irrational number that continues on and on and on and we hope we can get Wise Wonders to continue on and on.”
