Things are moving quickly along! Since September, museum staff and volunteers have relocated the whole of collections storage into the former store and special exhibits gallery, which won’t be affected during this phase of construction. Beachy Construction has begun work to renovate the front deck and entry, and erected a dust barricade to protect the permanent gallery (and overflow storage) from their work to install a new ramp to the marine gallery. The downstairs is completely gutted and preparing for a whole new life as dedicated storage and classroom space! Walls are going away upstairs as we get a glimpse of a new, wide open gallery space!
Spring has arrived! After a bit of a late start, the Gull Island camera is up and running! Come by the museum to control this live remote controlled camera, or watch the feed on YouTube. This year we replaced the camera unit itself, upgraded much of the wiring terminals, and replaced a component of the charging system, so things should be much more reliable!
