    FORT KNOX, Ky. (AP) — Fort Knox’s Gen. George Patton Museum is closing for six months for renovations.

    The museum will close on Nov. 1 while crews works on several upgrades, including a new roof and ventilation system for the building, which dates back to 1972.

    Radcliff-Fort Knox Tourism director Kelly Barron told the Elizabethtown News-Enterprise the repairs are happening during the tourism off-season.

    Other upgrades include new glass and metal in the atrium in the museum’s front, new sidewalks that will be covered, bathrooms with better disabled access and a repaving of the museum’s parking lot.

    Once renovations are completed, visitors will be able to enter the museum by driving in from U.S. 31W.
