EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- A brand new exhibit focusing on health and wellness is coming to a local museum, thanks to a grant.

The Children's Museum of Eau Claire received the Mayo Clinic Health System Hometown Health Grant. The museum says the new display "Eat, Move, Live" will be funded in part by that grant. Organizers say the project will reimagine a traditional playground through designed and fabricated elements in three areas: eating, moving and healthy living.

“There will be climbing, crawling, there will be hand-eye coordination skills, we'll also focus on nutrition, as well hopefully we'll be doing some healthy cooking classes programs and also interactive signage and experiences where children can build their own healthy plate of food,” said Executive Director, Michael McHorney.

Organizers hope to open the exhibit by August of 2018.
