Celebrating the Museum's closure

On June 29th 2012 the Museum hosted a party to celebrate the hard work of all of those who had contributed to the Museum staff realizing a long-held desire to improve collections facilities and renovate our existing galleries. While these improvements required the closure of the Museum for two years (from July 1st 2012) upon reopening we will be able to offer our visitors a wonderful and flexible gallery space and significantly improved collections facilities.
