  1. Would like to hear what museum professionals (curators, conservators, registrars, etc.) have to say about retrofitting this old building to museum standards for conservation, preservation, security, and display of objects.

  2. Regarding accessibility- Instead of an elevator, why not ramps and the unit they have at skss for assisting wheelchairs to upper levels.

  3. It would be an ideal new home for the museum. But let’s make it a ‘people’ place as well with a small coffee shop, outdoor gardens, why not some artisans on site (inside spaces) and of course the farmers market unless a better location is found. Art is all about education.
