Flour Mill Mu­seum is on the move

The Sudbury Star - - ENTERTAINMENT - LAURA KOSKOCKY GUEST COL­UMN Laura Koskocky is cu­ra­to­rial as­sis­tant with the Greater Sud­bury Mu­se­ums.

What’s hap­pen­ing at the Greater Sud­bury Mu­se­ums? We’re mov­ing. The Flour Mill Mu­seum, lo­cated at 245 St. Charles Street, is re­lo­cat­ing to O’Con­nor Park on Dell Street. This mu­seum cur­rently shares its site with a sewage lift sta­tion. The City of Greater Sud­bury’s Wa­ter and Waste­water De­part­ment will be up­dat­ing this lift sta­tion, and the ex­pan­sion of this cru­cial piece of in­fra­struc­ture needs to go where the mu­seum build­ings are lo­cated right now.

Mu­seum staff mem­bers are thrilled to be part of this tremen­dous project and are work­ing dili­gently to doc­u­ment and pack up the ar­ti­facts in or­der to en­sure their safety dur­ing the move. Mov­ing the Flour Mill Mu­seum to O’Con­ner Park pro­vides an ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­nity to re­vi­tal­ize its dis­plays and to bet­ter show­case its ar­ti­facts.

The Flour Mill Mu­seum is one of four com­mu­nity mu­se­ums run by the City of Greater Sud­bury, along with the Anderson Farm Mu­seum, the Cop­per Cliff Mu­seum and the Ray­side-Bal­four Mu­seum.
