Has anyone heard anything about the status of this museum? Their website has been down for quite awhile. I had heard rumors that the place was in trouble.

The museum is still open,daily,and is for rent for functions,etc. It is my understanding it is in recievership thru the federal government pending some actions involving the owner.(Kruse)
Hopefully this nice museum will continue to be available to visit and provide a venue for functions like the AMPS Nationals.

I called them today and asked about their History Fest that they have every year and the lady said it would be in September this year rather than July but she couldn't tell me exactly when. Sounded kinda suspicious to me
