LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The Lake Charles Children's Museum celebrated a milestone Saturday. Surrounded by supporters, friends and museum regulars the museum celebrated it's 24th year by serving cake but not before singing "happy birthday."

To mark the occasion they had lots of special activities for the kids. Along with the usual arts and crafts there was a potter who demonstrated his skills with clay. Sasol was also on hand performing their always popular science experiments.

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.
