Packing Up

Moving In

The Museum Resource Center / Regional Archeology Program Move Out!

The new Museum Resource Center construction is underway. This 52,000 sf state of the art museum support center will be finished in February 2000. This facility will contain 4 large viewing windows which will allow visitors a glimpse into the "behind the scenes" work that goes on at the Center. This 9 year old building, which is being retrofitted to museum standards, will house cultural and natural history collections from the National Capital Region, and will contain archeological processing labs, a researcher access room, a press area/layout room for the Vietnam Veterans Collection, a digital imaging/photography center, and the Regional Library. The Department of the Interior Ethnographic Collection will also be housed at the Center.

This site includes a photo collection outlining the processes that go into such a large-scale move. Browse through the selection on the left and see what it takes to move several million museum and archeological objects from one storage facility to another.
