LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Morrill Hall will be closed for three weeks starting in December, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln announced Tuesday.

Morrill Hall will close on Dec. 19 and is scheduled to reopen on Jan. 9, according to a press release.

UNL says the museum will be closed as crews work to prepare it for future renovations and maintenance projects planned from spring 2023 through early 2024.

In 2021, the Nebraska Legislature approved funding for maintenance projects at the university, which included multiple projects at Morrill Hall.

“We’re grateful to the Legislature for their support of our deferred maintenance projects,” said Susan Weller, director of the NU State Museum, in a release. “We’re excited about the upcoming facilities work and can’t wait for our members and the public to experience the updates across the museum once the work is completed.”

The university said visitors could start noticing minor inconveniences at the museum as renovations begin in late spring.
