Museum of Boulder - Museum Improvements

SUMMARY

Convert the building into an expanded museum that will accommodate larger displays, Smithsonian-class traveling exhibits, science and technology exhibits, as well as enhanced programming and space for children.

Description

  • The Museum of Boulder has recently acquired the historic Masonic Lodge building at Broadway and Pine with plans to convert the building into an expanded museum that will accommodate larger displays, as well as Smithsonian-class traveling exhibits in a specially designed gallery. The museum’s scope would be expanded to allow for science and technology exhibits, as well as enhanced programming and space for children. The museum has embarked on an ambitious capital campaign to raise the $8 million needed for the renovation, and is requesting that the city provide $4 million of that total with the rest to be matched by the community.
