I'm interested to know more about their programming like what they have planned for speakers and conferences besides the permanent exhibits.  Is there a gift shop accessible from Main St?

Apparently the construction wrapped up and they are working on the exhibits now. Haven't heard anything about an opening date. They had discussed opening late 2021/early 2022, but I think everything is moving at a glacial pace due to covid. Probably will be a spring opening?

Last I heard is they don't have funding for exhibits - they are trying to get the state to kick in more money to finish out the interior of the museum but it will likely not be open for 12 months or more is my guess. They spent pretty much everything that got allocated on the site/building.

Seems like an important part of building a museum is making sure you can actually have a museum..

Same approach the FAM (First Americans Museum) in OKC took. Once it's under construction at some point the state is going to kick in more funds to get it finished. They at least finished the building as opposed to FAM that went back for more money multiple times just to finish the structure. I'd expect there to be additional funding requested in the 2022 legislature session, I think all the bills to be considered this year are due here shortly.

Sounds like the "ask for forgiveness vs. ask for permission" thing.  Whatever....
