Museums construction work on schedule
Despite heavy rains, snow and cold conditions, construction on the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum and Mississippi History Museum are actually on track.
“It’s pretty amazing watching it happen,” said Stephenie Morrissey, public information officer with the Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH).
Work began on the museums in December. The first phase of construction, the exterior shells for the facilities, is expected to be completed in 18 months.
