They have been planning on building this museum building for awhile, but until I read about it in the paper I didn't realize work was already started. I'll have to get some pictures when I'm in Muskegon next.

Well I must say I was not to excited about this project when I first saw the plans included a building clad in sheet metal. Now that I have seen how it is something I'm still not excited, in fact even the project is looking worse than I would have imagined possible.

Compare these construction photos to the conceptual images

I know the building is long from done so I'm trying not to judge it from what I've seen so far, but it's hard not to.

So far it looks like a steel barn with a few windows cut into the steel after it was already on the building.

While I still worry about what it will look like in ten or twenty years the building looks much better then that sheetmetal pole-barn structure I photographed in February.

This side faces the channel and overlooks the Silversides.

It's much better then the trailers they have been using for twenty years as well.
