The latest exhibit - the Wetland's aquarium - was also a crowd pleaser. It's the final addition to the Louisiana Wetland's Exhibit and features native Louisiana crabs, fish and shrimp. Organizers said it's another way the museum is promoting learning and imagination among area children.

"We've been at several locations throughout the years and have grown bigger and better thanks to the community's help. As we celebrate our 24th year this day is really about giving back to all the volunteers and people who have helped us and people involved in education and learning," said Allyson Montgomery, Lake Charles Children's Museum Assistant Director.

The children's museum says expect new and exciting things to come as the enter they their 25th year.
