The Mississippi Children's Museum is expanding.
It's part of their "Build, Play, Grow." project.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Friday morning for the new $2 million Literacy Garden.
The educational outdoor gallery will also feature a walking trail, sculptures, and plants that are native to Mississippi.
"We believe children learn through doing and we think they learn through play," said Susan Garrard, Mississippi Children's Museum. "And, when children are playing that is their work."
Museum officials hope to start construction in the next couple of weeks.
The Literacy Garden is expected to open next spring.
