Piche says the late Catherine Scott donated over 575 thousand dollars.

He says the museum will use a portion of the funds to hire a full-time registrar who will be tasked with keeping track of the museum’s collection and facilities.

Funds will also be used to support the Daum’s education programs and for possible future expansion.
