The Brookshire's World Of Wildlife Museum has welcomed many kids and adults into its free museum to see animals from all around the world and to play on the firetruck, train caboose and playground, but the facility has recently closed. According to the museum's Facebook page, the facility closed on September 7th and posted the following on their page,

It's not clear why the Tyler attraction closed or when it may reopen. According to a release from Brookshire's that was posted on CBS19, the closure does have something to do with an ammonia leak that happened in the company's warehouse on the same property on Old Jacksonville Hwy. The Tyler Morning Telegraph printed the company's statement, which reads:

This location will remain temporarily closed until we have taken every possible measure to ensure the highest degree of safety for our visitors and staff. Although OSHA has given us the all-clear to reopen, we are going above and beyond and taking proactive measures to perform extensive diagnostic testing following a recent ammonia leak at one of our warehouses."

The company doesn't expect the closure to be permanent, but has not released a date on when this playful learning facility will re-open.
