UNI museum closing this week


After 120 years, the University of Northern Iowa museum will be closing the doors on its Hudson road location.

Thursday night the museum held a final open house for patrons.

A special exhibit to celebrate "120 years of Discovery, Learning and Inspiration" was part of the event.

The museum will work to move out of the building soon, taking with it many of its best exhibits and specimens.

 "And then we will, at the same time, be looking for spaces on campus where we can have an exhibit and store things on campus. We'll make them easily accessible to the students and faculty who want to use them. And we can give lectures and whatnot," said Sue Grosboll, the UNI museum director.

The museum will be open Friday starting at 9 am, closing its doors for the last time at 4:30 pm.
