Bye bye, Bead Museum

Bead MuseumThe Bead Museum, an eclectic little fixture in downtown Glendale for nearly 12 years, is closing on March 12 due to a decline in visitors and contributions, and directors are looking for a new home for its historic collection of beaded artifacts.

“Due to the economic downturn and the decline in the number of visitors and donations, the Museum is forced to re-examine its business model as a stand-alone museum,” said Kelly Norton, executive director, in a news release. “The Board strongly believes that the collection must remain available to the public and intact as one collection.”

The museum’s board of directors is actively seeking a suitable institution to permanently host the extensive collection of cultural artifacts. For more information, call (623) 931.2737.
