We recently posted our exciting news (HERE) about resurrecting the Emmett Lee Dickinson Museum (formerly above the coin-op laundromat on Dickinson Boulevard) in the abandoned bowling alley, Dickinson Lanes, on Dickinson Boulevard.
Now we have secured the services of the architectural firm Bilk, Snow, and Kahn to transform the run down facility into a brand-spanking new, state-of-the-art interactive museum for the multitudes of fans of Emmett Lee Dickinson (Emily Dickinson's third cousin, twice removed -- at her request).
The museum will include permanent exhibits on lanes 1 to 16 and changing exhibits on lanes 17 to 24. The Howie Doohan General Wax and Candle Company will recreate the former museum’s Great Hall of Wax Figures, plus there will be a nacho bar (Emily Dickinson invented nachos), a margarita bar, and a Grand Hall of Taxidermy.
