Founded in 1952, the Rocky Mount Children’s Museum (RMCM) was one of the nation’s first children’s museums. It offers a variety of exhibits featuring topics on physical sciences, natural and biological sciences, planetary and space sciences, and early childhood development. Each of the exhibits encourages critical thinking. After sustaining damage from hurricane Floyd, the museum had to operate out of a temporary location. Now it resides in the new Imperial Centre for the Arts and Sciences, a 150,000 square foot complex created in the old Imperial Tobacco Factory.
A visit to the new state-of-the-art digital SciDome™ planetarium is a must. Opening in January of 2006, the new planetarium will seat 56 visitors and will provide day and evening programs.
The Rocky Mount Children’s Museum and Science Center is located near downtown Rocky Mount at the Imperial Centre for Arts and Sciences on Franklin Street. For more information, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (252) 972-1167.View Larger Map
