The proposed December 1st opening of the Philip J Currie Dinosaur museum is facing some crucial time deadlines in the coming weeks. Pipestone Creek Dinosaur Initiative Executive Director Brian Brake says financial commitments have to be made by May 25th to start the exhibit castings, and by June 1st to have all of the museum displays purchased and installed.
“We need to get the work on the displays out there, so that we can identify a fabricator, and get that work started. That is 3.5 million dollars for the work, and if we do not get it started, it is not going to be finished on time.”
Brake suggested the museum opening could be pushed back to June of next year, if work on the displays does not start soon.
