Grand Opening set for Sioux City Public Museum

Posted:

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -- The date's been set.  People will get their first look at Sioux City's $12.5 million new public museum on April 23rd.

The doors will be open to the public in a grand opening celebration.

Among other features, the new museum contains a theatre, multipurpose classrooms, and artifact and exhibition preparation rooms.

Museum trustees say that the museum fills the missing piece of Historic Fourth Street.

"I think we fit in with the historic district because we are about history.  We're a nice compliment to the art center and the Orpheum and the other things that have been done in the downtown area.  I think this is the final link to that, to historic 4th street," says Dennis Bullock, chair of trustees.

The museum is located on the first floor of the former JC Penney department store at 4th and Nebraska.
