The Little Buckeye Children's Museum at 44 West Fourth St. Mansfield held its 2nd Annual Back to School celebration featuring the grand opening of its second floor exhibits.

Little Buckeye Children's Museum board chairman and volunteer Sheila Elcess said the museum is so proud of the support from the community it has received for all the exhibits.

"We're opening the Insectigations room which is an insect room. It's a chance for kids to interact with all kinds of specimens alive and mounted," Elcess said.

In the Insectigations room is also filled with living specimens including Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches adn Mealworms. Children also can observe and play with plastic replicas of insects in order to learn more about their body parts.

The second floor exhibits include a photo op area, Teeth Time dental office, Deconstruction, The Little School House and a auto repair area.

"We have a mechanic shop with a real car thanks to Baker's Collision and Mid-Ohio Collision. We also have a German tea house based on Goldie Locks and the Three Little Bears.  The Little School House exhibit is sponsored by Discovery School," Elcess said.

"Most of the upstair exhibits were built by carpentry students from Mansfield Senior High School," Elcess said.

The highlight of the exhibits was the Ronald McDonald Birthday party food area. Ronald McDonald made a special visit to the room.
