Photo Antiquities Museum Seeks More Room

The Photo Antiquities Museum on the North Shore is looking for more room, reports Sam Butterfield of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

“We are so jam-packed here that we have no space to expand,” said Bruce Klein, founder of the Photo Antiquities Museum. “We have been getting requests for people who want to come in and do research and we have no place to put anyone. People have asked us to show them lantern slides and we have no little theaters to do that, and there are some major collections in the country that need a home and I’d like to go after [them], but right now, we don’t have that … archive.

To publicize the museum’s need for help, Mr. Klein will announce the start of the effort and a search for a director for it at noon Tuesday at the Allegheny HYP Club, 619 William Penn Place, Downtown. In an effort to attract new visitors and potential donors, the museum will open its doors to the public at 6:30 p.m. Thursday for a free guided tour. Ordinarily, admission is $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors.
