Congratulations to our friends and colleagues at the Office of Exhibits Central, who just hosted us all for an open house in their new, absolutely fantastic new facility, the Pennsy Collections and Support Center!
The renovated 360,000 square foot facility features specialized space and equipment for exhibit design and fabrication and conservation. It also serves as additional collection storage for the American History Museum and the growing collection of the African American Museum of History and Culture.
According to the project director, “This wonderful new facility represents an innovative model for the Smithsonian that combines a variety of uses under one big roof… the Center sets a milestone in increased efficiency and support capabilities for the Smithsonian’s mission.”
Although it’s not open to the public, we’d love to show it off to Affiliates! Just give us a call.
