The long-anticipated new museum bridging Chandler’s history with its future will open its doors in just days.
The Chandler Museum grand opening will take place starting at 9:30 a.m. Dec. 8 at 300 S. Chandler Village Drive. The existing museum has been closed while workers constructed a new 10,000- square-foot building just north of the McCullough-Price House, slightly south of West Frye Road and west of the Loop 101.
The modern, new 10,000-square-foot building will house 5,000 square feet of changing exhibit space that is a mixture of local exhibits museum staff produces, as well as five to six nationally traveling exhibits. The national exhibits will change about once a quarter so visitors always have something new to view.
