Bringing a new dimension to the exhibits at the Northeast Texas Children’s Museum is MultiBall, an interactive sports wall. This gaming platform makes sports more attractive for all ages. With precision sensors and motion tracking, MultiBall provides a variety of fun games for all ages.

We officially open this exhibit on Wednesday, August 23, at 10:30 am. With a variety of 40 games played with balls on a sports wall, this new exhibit will be a popular attraction to the Children’s Museum for years to come.

You can find MultiBall in only four other places in Texas. The German Company which created MultiBall offers an experience that can be educational and fun. Different games provide entertainment for a variety of ages. The exhibit is free until September 12; after that date, there will be a $2 fee for an hour of MultiBall.

Russell Armstrong, CFP of Commerce, is the sponsor of the exhibit. Russell has been involved with the Children’s Museum since it began 20 years ago, but this is his first sponsorship within the museum. Bob Stachowiak and Dennis Anderson built the wall and installed the accompanying projector. “Russell, Bob, and Dennis are important to the Children’s Museum. They have been instrumental in providing this exhibit, but they have been long-time supporters of the museum,” said Sharline Freeman, Executive Director. “We expect this to be one of our most popular exhibits,” Sharline continued.

MultiBall will be the second recent large exhibit added to the Children’s Museum. In April, we installed a Fossil Dig with Lake Ralph Hall, the Perot Museum, the Upper Trinity Regional Water District, and the Ladonia Chamber of Commerce as the sponsors. The accompanying mural shows life in this area for the last 65 million years.

The Northeast Texas Children’s Museum attracts visitors from throughout Northeast Texas. The projected attendance for 2023 is 50,000 visitors.
