(This amendment provides $250,000 from the general fund in the second year to the Science Museum of Western Virginia. The museum has embarked on a five-year, top-to-bottom reinvention of its existing space in conjunction with the renovation of Center in the Square. The Reinvented Museum will: focus on three core content areas of greatest interest in the communities served; address the Commonwealth's most pressing priorities; ensure that the museum is accessible to all of the community; create over 50,000 square feet of new exhibits; become a national model for other mid-sized museums.)
