CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Building Goodness Foundation is awarding a new grant to the Virginia Discovery Museum on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall. The money will help fund renovations for the children's educational center.

Virginia Discovery Museum plans to replace its roof, lights, and floor to improve the learning environment for visitors.

"We want people to understand that we're an educational resource for the community, not just a rainy day play space and with us having this facelift and the ability to bring in some new exhibits, that'll help us to be able to build our programming which is our ultimate goal,” said Beth Solak of the Virginia Discovery Museum.

Virginia Discovery Museum tentatively plans to close for renovations in April and open back up in May.
