EXCHANGE-WISCONSIN MUSEUM

MADISON, Wis. _ After two decades of planning, the vision for a new $120 million, 100,000-square-foot Wisconsin Historical Society museum Downtown is taking shape, fueled by an unprecedented outreach effort to communities across the state, American Indian tribes and generations of Wisconsinites. The Historical Society has one of the nation’s largest collections of North American historical assets and operates 12 museums and sites. But its flagship museum has been housed in the 42,000-square-foot former Wolff Kubly hardware store building since 1984. The museum, which draws 77,000 visitors annually, including 23,000 school children, is woefully inadequate. By Dean Mosiman, Wisconsin State Journal. SENT IN ADVANCE: 1779 words, photos.
