CVB hopes to borrow MSP-related artifacts for museum
Monday, January 28, 2013
Wanted: artifacts and memorabilia from the old Missouri State Penitentiary.
The Jefferson City Convention & Visitors Bureau is asking the public for help in finding items they can loan to the new MSP Museum.
The museum could open around March 1, along with the start of the MSP tour season, CVB spokeswoman Ryan Winkler-Burns said.
Half of the CVB’s second-floor office space at 100 E. High St. is being made into the museum. It includes wood paneling on the walls and graphics such as an 8x20-foot mural from a photo of inmates milling around the prison yard.
