Playseum, a children's activity center and bookstore at 7000 Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda, will close between August 25 and September 6.
The 2-week closure is to facilitate renovations at the 4-year-old Bethesda business.
Playseum is inviting families to buy $10 ceramic tiles they can inscribe, which will be permanently displayed in the revamped facility's countertops. Children will get to decorate a second tile for free, which they can take home with them. Tiles can be purchased through August 20.
Playseum is located at the southern end of the shopping center at Wisconsin and Leland Street, home to Golden City and Royal Cleaners.
