The Discovery Museum Finds a Temporary Home

Good news for the Discovery Museum: It's found a new, albeit temporary, home in the Jefferson School community center. As you may have read in this week's Journal, the museum (and 10 other tenants in the Carson Block) have to pull up stakes so the building can undergo a multi-million-dollar seismic retrofit. Meanwhile, the Westside Community Improvement Association is hard at work revitalizing the former Jefferson School on B Street. The museum continues to look for permanent housing, but hey — it seems like a good fit.
