In creating the museum addition to the Pink Box, it was important and critical to the Foundation that the character of the original Pink Box be maintained and enhanced to create a unique experience for all who visit. Turnure Architecture and Design is creating a fully functional and integrated addition to the Pink Box. The result is a facility that will enable the Museum to tell the stories of Middelburg and its surrounding community while protecting and highlighting the special architectural and historical features of the Pink Box.
The museum addition is being constructed with the same period design features for an integrated feeling while providing a spacious exhibit hall to display the stories and history of Middleburg. The facility will include a large area for primary exhibits, a smaller multimedia room for oral and video histories, a staff office, connecting breezeway to the Pink Box, and museum-grade temperature and humidity storage to protect the artifacts of the museum, as well as those on loan. In addition, the facility will be fully handicap accessible. What is most exciting about the museum addition is it will only enhance the experience of the Pink Box for locals and visitors. The Pink Box itself and its mission will remain unchanged, continuing to serve as the Middleburg Visitor and Information Center as it has done for decades, fulfilling its vital and necessary role for the town, our businesses, and our community.
