Roanoke Visitors Center & Museum Receives Federal Grant for New Lighting


Last year, the Roanoke Visitors Center and Museum in Roanoke, Texas, received a federal grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to replace the museum’s lighting. We completed installation earlier this year, and now the museum’s lighting is more conducive not only for the protection of the artifacts, it also improves the experience for our visitors. The original lighting was meant more for general office use. Some of the displays were well-lit while others were in shadow. With the new system, the lights are better positioned and visitors can see the displays and read the captions with less strain. The Roanoke Visitors Center and Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of the City of Roanoke, a once-small town that is now growing at a substantial rate. We take pride in being a small museum with a professional outlook. This IMLS grant helps us achieve our goal of protecting the beloved artifacts donated by local families and showcasing our history to visitors from around the world. Please stop in the Roanoke Visitor Center and Museum to see the exhibits highlighting Roanoke’s amazing history. Open Monday – Friday 10-6pm and Saturday 11-7.  Free Admission.
