SEATTLE (AP) — Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry officially opens at its new location Saturday in the city’s booming South Lake Union neighborhood.
The new facility will provide the museum with 50,000 square feet of exhibit space.
The grand opening kicks off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m., followed by performances from a poet and local musicians throughout the day.
The museum says visitors will also have the opportunity to participate in activities, such as Salish weaving demonstrations, print making, and a build-your-own periscope project sponsored by the Puget Sound Maritime Historical Society.
