The FAQ we get most: "what are your hours?"

 

The answer is, we don't have hours yet.  We' are working towards opening this state-of-the-art educational facility  that will serve as a beacon of hope and empowerment.  This unique institution will serve as a model for similar museums nationwide! When completed, the MPC will contain ample space for interactive exhibits, public forums, roundtable discussions, and classrooms to help educate our next generation of leaders.  To realize our goal, we need your help.  Follow us on Twitter, let others know about us, donate if you can, and send us your ideas for the museum! this museum has to be built by all of us!
