Museum director Nick Nelson presented the proposal to the Springfield City Council on Tuesday. The plans would turn the museum into a multi-story building meant as a community hub with trails and a meandering stream.
The Springfield News-Leader reports Nelson said the project would cost about $17 million if it’s completed all at once.
The museum board is considering having the construction done in three phases. After the renovation, the museum will continue to offer free admission.
A walking and biking trail will connect the museum and adjacent Phelps Grove Park to the Water Wise garden to the south and to Fassnight Park to the west.
Architecture firm BNIM has been working with the museum to develop a master plan for the building and surrounding area. BNIM has offices in Kansas City, Des Moines, and San Diego. It has done work for the Nelson-Atkins Museum and Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts.
