INSPIRING, EDUCATING, AND ENTERTAINING

Fun-filled grand opening weekend


After a long, three-year closure, we finally opened the doors of our new museum on May 21, 2022. It was wonderful to welcome visitors into our new facility and to see the joy and awe on their faces.

Thank you to our amazing team of volunteers and staff who made the weekend a success, and to all the museum-lovers who made time to visit. Over the course of three days, roughly 2,500 people toured the museum!
