Environmental Controls and Security Upgrades to Protect the Collections of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West

Renovations that would improve environmental conditions and security systems at the center’s five museums, including roof repairs at two of the facilities.

The Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming, is applying to the NEH Division of Preservation and Access for an Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge Grant to install new security systems; replace an aging steam boiler with atomizer humidifiers, install a new chiller and cooling tower; retrofit air handlers in exhibition and storage areas; install building management systems to ensure environmental conditions that are the best for the collections are maintained; and replace aging roof systems to ensure collections protection. Some of this work will be in structures that are more than 50 years old. The five-year cost of the highest-priority projects is $2,047,000. With this application, we are asking for $500,000 to be used over the five years. Trustees and staff are committed to raising the $1.5 million match as well as the additional funds needed to complete the projects outlined.
