1. The initial project became too expensive to seriously consider completion
2. The new Arizona Experience website is achieving the goals of the Arizona Experience museum at a fraction of the cost
3. The website makes the wide ranging information about Arizona available to the entire world, not just a handful of visitors to a brick and mortar museum
4. There is a serious need for the K-12 educational programs previously offered by the mineral museum
5. Arizona’s centennial year can still end with two remarkable successes: www.arizonaexperience.org and a restored and improved mineral museum.
