“As the museum moves into its second month of being open we are ecstatic to see the response. The collective is keeping busy with continued artifact submissions and programming being added to our events calendar. The Triple Down Bar is keeping guests well-hydrated slinging drinks including the already notorious “Fletcher” (a cocktail served in a Pringles can).”
