Museum move begins

A contract for dismantling the exhibits and prepping the space for the move was granted this week, so yesterday Archives staff was working with Artex to move new material. As the AFIP closes, many departments transferred their photographic collections or historical books or other material to the Archives. We’ve filled about 20 pallets of material, and moved half of that to our existing warehouse yesterday – about 20,000 pounds of it.  It should be the same today. The material will stay on pallets until it can be unpacked and arranged and processed in our new warehouse space.
