Future of the Southwest Museum

by AirTalk

Like many aging beauties in the Southland, LA's oldest museum is getting a facelift. Beginning June 30, the Autry National Center's historic Southwest Museum, which dates back to 1914, will undergo three and a half years of repairs. It sounds like good news, but some neighbors and activists fear the museum may never reopen. The first of five public hearings on the subject took place last night. Larry talks with museum advocate Eliot Sekular and John Gray, Executive Director and CEO, Gene Autry Museum, about the museum's future.
