Default Collections Management Facility

While a "sneak peek" of the new Collections Management Facility for the Howard Steamboat Museum will be possible, the new climate controlled buildling, when completed later this summer, will NOT be part of regular museum tours or open to the general public. It is primarily to securely house MANY artifacts, including large items like the bells from the ferry FROMAN M. COOTS and the Howard Shipyard, etc. Much of the newly installed geothermal HVAC system is concealed in closets throughout the mansion, as well as the attic and basement, so we now need storage space more than ever!

The new building will also contain an office and space for exhibit creation, etc. We are currently looking at various kinds of shelving, cabinets, etc. My sidekicks, Kenny and Jimmy, and I are planning a field trip to area museums next week to have a look see at their storage facilities. I've been poring over catalogs from archival supply companies. LOTS to think about!
