A NOTE OF SPECIAL THANKS: To those who have organized recent fundraising events and activities to raise money for the Museum's ongoing projects.
We are very excited about the recent ground-breaking for the PEACE Pavillion and addition of the KIA garden.
We could not do these projects without the generosity of our construction workers who donate their time and resources. Thank you so much for all you do.
