New Project: Springfield Armory National Historic Site Enhanced Feasibility Study Underway

January 11, 2021

We recently kicked off an Enhanced Feasibility Study for the Springfield Armory National Historic Site to help rethink museum collection storage. Springfield Armory was the nation’s first armory and serves as a visitor’s center and museum that interprets and preserves, “the world’s largest historic US military small arms collection, along with historic archives, buildings, and landscapes.” This study is an extension of the MFA’s work with the GSA and Interior Region 1 of the National Park Service to improve museum collection storage facilities throughout the region and conserve, preserve and protect historic artifacts for generations to come.
