Designs for new Chandler Museum will be presented during public open house March 22
Conceptual designs for a new Chandler Museum will be unveiled to the public at a special open house from 6-7:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 22, 2017, at the historic McCullough-Price House, 300 S. Chandler Village Drive. Museum staff and the project architects will present the preliminary designs and outline the project schedule.
Currently, the Chandler Museum resides in the historic 3,300-square-foot McCullough-Price House, located on the southwest corner of Frye Road and Chandler Village Drive, across from Chandler Fashion Center. The new museum will be a 10,000-square-foot building on the same property, just north of the historic house. Renovations will also be made to the McCullough-Price House, which will then transition into a state-of-the-art research and archive site for the Museum.
The construction of a new building will enable Chandler Museum to become a cultural destination with engaging, community-focused programs and forums, as well as world-class traveling exhibits. By locating the new Museum at this location, the City takes advantage of easy access to the Loop 101 Price and Loop 202 Santan freeways, proximity to vast shopping and dining options, and a growing area that is being developed for residents and tourism.
