Musuem of Surveying Headed to Illinois

The Museum of Surveying will relocate to Springfield, Illinois, the State Journal-Register reported. Currently located in Lansing, Michigan, the Museum of Surveying is the only museum in North America dedicated solely to the surveying and mapping profession. It houses a collection of surveying artifacts, early surveying and mapping instruments, and historical literature.

The Journal-Register reported that a formal announcement is expected March 13th. At that time, it is expected that the museum will announce that it will occupy a 10,000 square feet facility on the north side of Old Capitol Plaza in downtown Springfield.
