Gazebo renovation and new benches

By Jackie Garbarino
Museum Gift Shop and Volunteer Manager

Rome wasn’t built in a day and the gazebo wasn’t renovated in a week — or even two or three. But it is now and looks WOW! The pictures tell the story.

With the help of  Joseph and Etienne of Caribbean Tours International, who donated the benches, the new benches are waiting for you in the botanical garden and on the museum portico.

Joseph and Etienne start unpacking the benches.  Etienne carefully reading the “simple” instructions while Joseph goes full speed ahead.

So come soon and enjoy some history, some shopping and some shade!
