Eat! Drink! So Fab! Grand Opening Weekend says
We were so thrilled about getting into our new Museum at 1504 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. that we celebrated our ribbon-cutting and the “soft opening” six months ago. Now, we’ve finished installing new exhibits and galleries, the acclaimed new Southern restaurant Purloo is open for lunch and dinner, and we’re even prouder to show off what we’ve been up to since September 2014! We’ll start the celebration with a gala on Friday night and continue with free days on Saturday and Sunday, demonstrations, and discussions. For more information, visit
