MOSH 2.0 PROJECT GETS FIRST MAJOR FUNDING
The Museum of Science & History (MOSH) announced this week that VyStar Credit Union has pledged $2.5 million toward MOSH 2.0, a planned expansion and renovation of the museum.
VyStar will be recognized as the title sponsor for the VyStar Credit Union Cultural Ecosystem, a display that will feature details on Jacksonville’s history, and CEO Brian Wolfburg will become a member of the museum’s board of trustees.
VyStar is additionally sponsoring free admission for military personnel and their families on April 18.
MOSH 2.0 is a planned $80 million renovation to the museum’s campus that was announced last year. It has since been seeking private and public funds to turn the 2.0 vision into a reality; the VyStar announcement represents the project’s first small step forward.
