As revised by SB 1530, state statutes will transfer the mineral museum from the Arizona Historical Society to the Arizona Geological Survey as of mid August 2016. However, the date the mineral museum will reopen cannot be determined at this time.
Because the AHS vacated the historic building in 2011, it cannot be reoccupied now until some upgrades are made. Some detail on these requirements are presented in the Friday, May 20th post on http://repository.azgs.az.gov/aggregator/sources/1
Complete but only preliminary requirements are in a May 19th ADOA report. Meanwhile, the AZGS itself is going through a transition as it is being consolidated into the U of A.
