MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee's Betty Brinn Children's Museum got a generous gift Tuesday, July 27.
It wasn't one of those giant checks that you see so often. In a way, it was even cooler than that.
It's a 22-foot truck, donated to the museum by We Energies.
Chances are you've seen this truck out on We Energies service calls in the past. Those days are over.
The truck will now be turned into a "mobile museum" -- a teaching tool for Betty Brinn.
Museum Director Brian King talks about the conversion process.
"Turning it into something that screams Betty Brinn and the zany nature that we bring to everything that we do. We will pack it full of custom-built, small format exhibits that we can take on the road, so it's not just our educators and a backpack."
King says an "aggressive goal" would be to have the truck on the road, making appearances by the start of the new year.
