    he Duluth Children’s Museum is a place where children begin their lifelong exploration of an ever-expanding world. The mission of the Duluth Children’s Museum is to spark children’s curiosity. The next big move for the Museum is currently underway. In December of 2009 the organization purchased the Duluth Malt and Brewing building on Helm Street in West Duluth.
