At WOW we fit in while standing out from other museums. Longview World of Wonders started with a dream much like many civic enhancement projects seen throughout Longview. Research began in the late 1990’s to bring a children’s museum to Longview. Longview World of Wonders is building upon those research and marketing/feasibility studies conducted to make a vision into a reality. A civic-minded group of area residents began discussing the dream of creating a hands-on children’s museum in early 2009 and assembled in March. By June, a board of directors was elected; in August, committees were formed and a logo was created by Barbara Crane; and by September by laws were approved.
