Newseum Opening Delayed.

From NBC 4 in Washington, D.C.: Newseum Opening Will Miss Deadline [emphasis mine]:

It looks as if D.C.’s museum dedicated to the news industry won’t come in on deadline.

The Newseum’s new location at Sixth Street and Pennsylvania Avenue in Northwest was supposed to open on Oct. 18, but officials said construction delays will push that date back.

They’re shooting for the first quarter of next year, but a firm date has not been set.

The $435 million project is being held up because the building is so complex and will have state-of-the-art electronics that must be installed after most construction is complete.

When it’s done, the museum will have 14 galleries, 15 theaters, two broadcast studios and 130 interactive touch screens.
