A new home for the Harrisonburg Children's Museum is allowing it to expand its services.
Congressman Bob Goodlatte was able to secure a grant for the museum, which helped it pay for the move to its new location.
On Friday, he stopped by the museum to see how the money is being used and check in on the museum's progress.
He thanked the public for continuing to support the children's museum and helping it to grow.
Goodlatte says, "As they grow, as they get more demand they're going to have to expand and fortunately the city and the museum board have had a lot of foresight in getting a building that has two additional floors. So I think in the near future, we'll see this museum going up."
Since the move, the museum is seeing between 1,200 and 1,300 kids each week.
