Perrin Field Museum Holds Grand Opening

Posted:

DENISON, TX--After countless weeks moving to a new location, a museum has finally opened its doors.

The Perrin Field Museum held its grand opening Saturday morning. 

The new facility is three times the size of the original. Museum workers say the new space has given them the opportunity to showcase more memorabilia than before.

"Once you put it all together into the 40s and the 50s and the 60s, we had this overwhelming amount of history from the Perrin Base--from it's inception in the 40s till it would close in 71," Craig Summer said, museum curator said.

The new building is located near the entrance of their air port. Employees say the museum is always accepting more relics.
