New tenant for the old doll museum in Bellevue

The KidsQuest Museum, now residing in the Factoria Mall in Bellevue, just received more funding in its quest for a new home. The city of Bellevue’s just-approved budget includes $2 million for KidsQuest; that puts the museum’s Good to Grow Campaign at $6 million, halfway toward its $12 million goal to purchase and renovate the former Rosalie Whyel Museum of Doll Art on 108th Avenue Northeast. (The Whyel museum closed in 2012 after 20 years of operation.) According to a news release from KidsQuest, a move-in date is sometime in 2016. Since the museum opened in 2005, annual attendance has increased to 160,000 visitors per year.
