Last September, The Children's Museum of Science and Technology (CMOST) and The Children's Museum at Saratoga signed a management agreement and will reopen in June of 2022 at a new shared location at the Lincoln Bathhouse in Saratoga Spa State Park. This new space will create a regional children’s museum with CMAS managing all aspects of operations, programming, and administration and CMOST expanding their programming. This relocation will feature a larger space with new exhibitions, interactives, classroom space, and access to the natural resources and amenities of the State Park.

In our January "This Month in NYS Museums" newsletter we spoke with CMAS Executive Director Sarah Smith to learn more about what this collaboration will look like and the reimagined space.
