Heritage Center Celebrates Soft Opening

Posted:
        After a long wait, the state's new Heritage Center finally opens it's doors.
    This morning part of the Heritage Center is opened to the public, including 2 of the 4 museum galleries, the renovated Russell Reid Auditorium and the new Great Plains Theater.
    The 100-thousand square foot expansion totals roughly 52 million dollars.
    The Heritage Center opened in 1981, and closed in the fall of 2012 to begin this major renovation. 

(Gov. Jack Dalrymple / ND)"It's really important to have a center piece in your state Capitol where people know that there is something very special and very unique to see. It becomes a focal point for the whole state. It becomes a great focal point for visitors who come to see North Dakota."

    The grand opening featuring all four museum galleries and additional indoor and outdoor spaces, will take place on Sunday, Nov. 2.
