Thanks, Richard. I hope the museum will have storage space for items which should be archived if not displayed.

Below is a link to an article by Steven Silver about the ongoing efforts to complete the Ray Bradbury Experience Museum in Ray's childhood hometown of Waukegan, Illinois, and the Museum's goal of opening its doors in time for Waukegan's Bradbury Centennial celebration in August of 2020.

A short video of actor Joe Mantegna (star of the excellent film version of THE WONDERFUL ICE CREAM SUIT) was posted a few days ago on the Facebook page of the Ray Bradbury Experience Museum, noting his support for the Museum:

dandelion, it would probably be best to contact the Ray Bradbury Experience Museum and/or the City of Waukegan for such information.

The city PR person says as of now, events will go on as planned.
