The Rock Island Arsenal Museum was recently featured in an article written by Debbie McFadden with the KWQC TV6 News & Quad City Times Insi6t. Patrick Allie, museum director, and Amanda Siegner, Board of Directors RIA Museum, participated in the roundtable discussion.
“After a closure of more than three years for extensive renovations, the Rock Island Arsenal Museum will celebrate a grand re-opening on June 29.
This episode of INSI6HT explores everything related to what the Rock Island Arsenal Museum offers and the changes soon to be revealed.
The museum hasn’t been renovated in over 80 years and the goal was to present the exhibits and artifacts to tell a more relevant story centered on the local installation’s story including the community’s very important and pivotal role in national defense and global impacts.”
