Home Buyers & Sellers in Chandler AZ Have a New Museum

The long waited, all new Chandler Arizona Museum will host a ‘grand opening’ on December 8, 2018.  The new Downtown Chandler building will help the Chandler Museum to become a new Chandler Resident destination with engaging, “community-focused” programs and forums, as well as world-class traveling exhibits!

The Chandler AZ citizens’ task force first identified the need for a new museum in the early 1980’s.  Chandler AZ Voters passed two ballot elections, in 2004 and 2007, in support of a bigger square footage building that serves the entire community for Chandler residents.  

The original Chandler Museum previously resided in the historic 3,300-square-foot McCullough-Price House, located on the southwest corner of Frye Road and Chandler Village Dr., directly across the street from Chandler Fashion Center.  The latest Chandler Museum will be located in a 10,000-square-foot building at the same property, just north of the historic house with nearly 13,000 square feet of outdoor museum areas, including a 10,000 square-foot courtyard which is the ‘heart’ of the project, tying the two buildings together and providing a shaded ‘gathering’ place for visitors and outdoor venues.

The renovations to the historic house create a ‘formal’ state-of-the-art research and archive site for the Downtown Chandler Museum while maintaining its status on the National Register of Historic Places.  Together, the project establishes a City of Chandler iconic cultural facility on the west side of Chandler AZ which takes great advantage of its easy access to the 101 and 202 freeways respectively.  The location is also very close proximity to vast shopping and dining options at the Chandler Fashion Center, and a growing area that is being redeveloped for Chandler AZ residents and tourists alike.

The Chandler AZ Museum is just one more great reason to buy a home in Chandler Arizona.  Likewise is selling a home in Chandler AZ, this is a great selling community feature!

Construction began in October 2017.  Dedication of the new museum is set for December 8, 2018. Follow the Chandler Museum on Facebook for updates.
