$5 Million Expansion Opens At Dennos Museum Center

A $5 million expansion at a Northern Michigan museum is now complete.

The Dennos Museum Center at Northwestern Michigan College is eager for the public to come check out the 15,000 square foot project, that’s been under construction for the past year.

They added two new wings to the museum, which allows them to expand their permanent collection and Inuit art gallery.

“We doubled the size of our exhibition space to show Inuit art, plus a whole new storage area for that collection,” explained Dennos Museum Center Executive Director, Eugene Jenneman. “And then we have around 1,000 works of non-Inuit art, general art that are in our collection here, and the gallery we’re standing in is one of the galleries in which we are now showcasing that collection.”

The Dennos Museum encourages everybody to come in and see the changes for themselves.
