(This amendment provides $200,000 the first year and $500,000 the second year from the general fund to the Children's Museum of Virginia, which is located in the City of Portsmouth. The appropriation will be applied to the construction portion of the Phase III expansion of the Children's Museum. Currently, the museum is planning for a renovation and expansion that will relocate the entrance to a more visible location on High Street. The expansion will add approximately 25,000 square feet to the building, move the gift shop to High Street, and add additional programming space and new exhibits.)
