Our storage room has had water infiltration from a faulty air conditioning system. To abate the mold we have had to empty that room and move our collection to table tops in our museum and other display spaces. Most of the items were undamaged by water but everything was affected by mold growth resulting from the water. Conservators from the Intermuseum Conservation Association and our volunteers cleaned every item you see here and more by hand to eliminate mold.
We expect the construction to be finished by mid-September and we will reopen the museum and archives shortly after that. Thank you and hope you will visit or volunteer with us.
