Arizona Historical Society trying to boost revenue
A recent job posting reads as follows (italics added):
The Arizona Mining and Mineral Museum, which the AHS acquired and closed, provided free education programs to schools at no cost to taxpayers. Those science education programs served tens of thousands of students every school year.
The AHS plans to use the mineral museum building for the $15 million Arizona Experience Museum.
