ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX47) -- The Minnesota Children's Museum in Rochester is closing its doors this weekend ahead of a move to Apache Mall.

The new location, "Spark," is opening this summer. It is reportedly 7,000 square feet, double the size of the current location in River Center Plaza.

The main focus of the museum is on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) careers, health, and well-being.

It will include a climbing wall, an international bazaar, and a water play experience.

The current location closes up this Sunday. There will be free admission for the museum's last day. You can stop by from 12 to 4 p.m.
