With the Academy Awards fast approaching (Sunday, February 24), I was recently reminded of the ongoing planning and development for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Scheduled to open in 2016, work on the LA Museum has been in the news on and off the past couple of years.

As a student of history, film, and museums – I’m keeping a close watch on this museum! As many museums have to close their doors due to the climate of the field, it is interesting to watch the growth and development of other institutions.

Are there are any museums or cultural centers in the planning or development stage that you’re watching closely?
