The $18 million dollar renovation at the Petroleum Museum has officially begun, museum officials said Monday.

Despite the renovations, educational programs, facility rentals and the museum store will be open throughout the construction. These areas will also be the “driving force of the Museum's public face,” museum officials said in a statement.

The North and East wings of the museum will be closed during the renovation.

"We are thrilled to be moving forward on this project,” Kathy Shannon, Executive Director of the Petroleum Museum said in a statement. “Our quality programs will continue throughout the renovation and we look forward to offering our community not only the highest quality programs, but also an exceptional museum.”

During the construction, the museum will set up a temporary petroleum exhibit in the front portion of the Mineral Gallery.

Museum rates during construction will drop to $5 for adults and senior citizens, $3 for students and free entrance for children under five and museum members.
