Post subject:  Museum To Close For Major Overhaul

August 1, 2016 WNMU Museum will close for about 14 months while an extensive remodel is undertaken. Two or 3 weeks after closure an interim, newly crafted display of Mimbreno Pots and other goodies, as well as the museum gift shop, will open in Watts Hall at the corner of Swan and Silver Heights from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m , Monday through Friday. Also on display will be the architectural renderings of the transformation of Fleming Hall.

The display areas, as shown in the photo above of the main display room will receive extensive remodeling as befitting the world class collections of Mimbreno pottery and artifacts. To achieve maximum environmental conditions for preservation of ancient artifacts a state of the art HVAC system will be installed to control all 4 floors of this historic building. And, as security systems are always being upgraded, it will be again with this remodel.
