SIU Museum Re-opens

Mar 8, 2018

The public can now visit the University Museum on SIU's Campus once again.

After being closed due to budget concerns, the Museum officially reopened in Faner Hall.

Due to the ongoing state budget impasse, the museum at Southern Illinois University Carbondale will close temporarily on July 1.

Interim Chancellor Brad Colwell says budget cuts have reduced the staff to just one person who will maintain the collections.
