(WMC-TV) - The National Civil Rights Museum must delay the grand opening of their newly renovated museum.
As with any construction project you never know if you are going to be able to make that opening date when you get into the home stretch, and that is the case at the NCRM.
They were forced to delay the re-grand opening of the newly renovated museum.
In 2010, the NCRM announced an unprecedented $27 million dollar renovation project. For years the museum has only been partially open to visitors during a highly anticipated facelift that was scheduled to be unveiled in a few weeks.
"Originally we had announced that March would be our reopening," said NCRM Director of Education Barbara Andrews.
Andrews says the opening date has been delayed until the first week of April.
"The reopening will occur over the commemorative weekend, which is April 4 and 5," she said.
Andrews says the delay is not due to a construction setbacks, but the museum needs more time to familiarize the staff with the new technology and interactive exhibits inside.
"We're just taking a little bit more time before we open the doors to make sure that we're comfortable with all the technology. We want that museum to be up when we say that it's open," she said.
And while the appearance of the exteriors of the museum have not been particularly pleasing during the three-year project, one perk during this time is that visitors were able to, for the first time, stand on the balcony where Dr. King was shot. It is something that will be going away after the grand opening.
