Construction 2018

There is construction by the museum in 2018.  The City of Sunnyvale is removing their maintenance building which has blocked the front view of the museum from the parking lot. Parts of the parking lot are fenced off, but the museum is still fully accessible. Once the building is removed, a new, grand entrance to the museum will be built and landscaped.  We will install vintage wrought iron gates that were donated for this purpose.

Here are photos of the demolition and construction.
