    BRILLIANT!!! I wanted to be there so much, but had to work. I am looking forward to seeing the new museum/research center with my own two eyes… and take photos, too 🙂 It looks like something we can be proud to have.

    Loved the images! Thanks for taking the time to share them with us, Matt.

    For whatever reason I didn’t realize there was a green roof. Looks like a great place! I’ll have to visit as soon as I come home.

    I visited this past weekend and I was impressed by the new museum. Felt a little lost, but we can’t expect to know everything about it the first time we get there. It seemed to me that other visitors were anxious to find out more about this new destination; judging from the ones I spoke to. This is a contemporary building we can be proud of.
