Our Museum is growing - wanna come play?

Renton History Museum is making a plan - incorporating new ideas, heading in new directions and taking on a whole new identity. You wanna come along and have a stake in what our present and future generations will see and say about our town's legacy? A little like "Killroy was Here", but more defined.

The museum has hired a professional planning firm, Gyroscope, Inc., to help with charting out a course for the museum for the next 15 years. This is not a "one size fits all" approach to consulting, but collaborating with a team of super creative consultants that want to work out specific options to fit our town's needs.

Please come and be a part of a hands on Informational Meeting on Thursday, October 22nd from 7 - 9pm and weigh in with your thoughts and ideas. The consulting firm will be sharing with us the research they have done on Renton, showing similar museums in other areas that are doing things that might be of interest, and some visual exercises will make the meeting more interactively dynamic and fun. Elizabeth Stewart, Director of Renton History Museum, promises that it will be a "cool process".

Consider this your chance to be a part of history making. Adding in your voice, your view for those present and future audiences of Renton history. YOU are the special spice that is needed to make this gathering a go.

What I might also remind you, is that this is a great way to come and see the museum if you have never taken the opportunity before. Don't be shy - no one will mind if it's your first time. Come take a peek at what has come before you on the hallowed grounds of Renton.
