Recently I was part of a group that toured the Fort Collins Museum & Discovery Science Center, which is under construction on the northwest corner of North College and Cherry St. And it's a winner.
Annette Geiselman, executive director of the current Discovery Science Center, served as our tour guide. She couldn't be more enthusiastic and proud of the new facility. It's a joint public-private project. Funding came from passage of Issue 2B - also known as "Building on Basics" - and donations from the community. The Chamber supported and actively campaigned for the passage of 'BOB'.
For the community, two cultural organizations are being combined into a great new facility that will become a tourist attraction for the area when it opens next year.
