WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center will soon renovate its community space after receiving $283,000 in funding from the state Legislature in 2020.

Work includes improving acoustics and accessibility, according to Ashley Sinner, a museum spokesperson.

The upgrades include a sound system, installation of acoustic tiles and ceiling clouds, an upgraded stage, lighting and increased accessibility for those with hearing aids.

The sound system upgrades will help aid audio quality and allow for various types of media during community events, according to Sinner. The new tiling and clouds should help reduce sound problems caused by high ceilings and hard surfaces in the museum.

The museum’s performance hall will be closed during renovations for three to four weeks. The work will temporarily close off access to the Liberty Theater Wurlitzer Pipe Organ.
