(This amendment provides planning funds for a museum gallery building at the Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia (FCM). Climate and weather are the major factor in visitation to outdoor museums. Special programs or events planned for outside often end in disappointment because of rain, or excessive heat or cold. The FCMV has always lacked an inside space where it can provide Virginians with quality educational and interpretative exhibits, programs, and special events when conditions make outdoor experiences uncomfortable and inconvenient.)
