As previously announced, the Foundation is working to completely renovate the Marie Dressler Museum.  Actually, a better description would be that the museum is being completely rebuilt from scratch.  Unfortunately, this means that it will be closed from late May until it reopens.  There will be no access to any exhibits during that time.

But on September 24th, 2016, there will be a grand re-opening with celebrations to mark the event.  Stay tuned for more news on this.
