Knock Knock Children's Museum opens in Baton Rouge

September/October 2017



Baton Rouge's Knock Knock Children's Museum held its grand opening late August 2017. The 26,000-square-foot facility overlooks City-Brooks Community Park, just minutes from LSU's campus.

The museum features interactive exhibits for children, birth through age 8, and their families that help close the knowledge and early childhood education gap. Whether through field trips, summer and holiday camps, homeschool programs, or educator nights - there are plenty of ways for children and educators to engage with the museum and its programs.

From its inception, LSU has played a major role in the process of making Knock Knock a reality. The logo was designed by LSU grad students in the School of Graphic Design. The logo influenced the Board to change the name from the Capital City Children’s Museum to its current name. In 2012, Brandon Smith organized an Educational Framework Planning Symposium for faculty across various disciplines to meet with KKM representatives. The symposium resulted in several partnerships to further develop the exhibits/learning zones of the future museum.
