HCOC Lighting Project
New lights and fixtures were installed in the museum. The lights were installed in the various rooms as identified from a museum lighting redesign planned in 2019. All the lights and fixtures installed are LED lights, with a number of them having dimming capability and motion sensors. Additional UV window film was added where needed in the museum to address the natural light coming into the building. A black-out curtain was also installed to block all-natural light from entering the museum when the museum is closed. One of the biggest challenges a museum faces is preservation vs. access; trying to preserve artifacts and history for the future while at the same time allowing visitors to interact with their history. This project helps the museum achieve a better balance.
$2,500,000 each year is for history partnerships involving multiple organizations, which may include the Minnesota Historical Society, to preserve and enhance access to Minnesota's history and cultural heritage in all regions of the state.
