Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum Expansion Announcement

The Gerald R. Ford Museum announced plans to build a two-story expansion that will house a new Student Learning Center and a theater-in-the-round. Planned renovations will also "enhance the current exhibits and add features to raise the national awareness of the Musem". One of those added features will be the construction of an interactive replica of the USS Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier.

The proposed addition will be located on the south side of the Museum (Pearl Street side), adjacent to the main entrance. The project is estimated to cost about $15 millon.

A specific groundbreaking date and completion date will be announced in the future.
