Put a new Hamilton children's museum in 45 King to bring families downtown and visitors from out of town. They'll stay and eat at downtown hotels and restaurants.

Run it as a nonprofit.

Build it thru corporate support, foundations, individual donors and maybe the Future Fund?

See Indianapolis, Chicago, Boston, Rochester and London, ON for what's possible. http://www.familyvacationcritic.com/10-b...

Use existing lots and municipal garages so the museum doesn't incur the cost of maintaining its own parking lot.

Partner with downtown arts and culture organizations to deliver programming and events.
