Plans progressing for Hanford history museum

Published:

 

RICHLAND, Wash. (AP) -- Plans are moving forward for construction of a $41 million museum at Richland that would tell the history of the Hanford nuclear reservation in World War II and the Cold War.

The Corps of Engineers has approved the environmental review and a sublease for the site of the Hanford Reach Interpretive Center at Richland.

The Tri-City Herald reports proponents still need to raise about $15 million for the museum. It also would feature information about the area's Ice Age floods.
