CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — After years of temporary housing caused by the 2008 flood, Cedar Rapids' science museum has a new, permanent home.
Organizers say the Science Center, known in 2008 as the Science Station, will be closed for several days beginning Monday so staff can move equipment into a building on Council Street. The space once housed a grocery store and later office space for military contractor Rockwell Collins.
The center has been located for several years inside several spots at Lindale Mall. The new 31,000 square feet property will be 10 times that space.
Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports (http://bit.ly/17lOzWF ) the museum's board is leasing the new building. Officials say they'll begin a fundraising campaign to buy the building once they settle in.
Museum organizers hope to reopen sometime next week.
