Currently the museums reside on MU’s campus, but next spring they will be moved to the old Ellis Fischel building located near Business Loop 70.&nbsp; Since the announcement was made there have been some tensions regarding whether or not it will all be a good move for the two museums.</p> Mon, 01 Jul 2013 15:07:51 +0000 Rickelle Pimentel 36306 at http://kbia.org What is the future of MU's campus museums?
