Well the recession has claimed another victim.
The Phoenix Museum of History was funded primarily by gifts, grants and a small yearly allocation from the city council.
The gifts and grants have virtually dried up and the city council recently ended their contribution.
The museum closed on June 30th and it is not known when, or if, it will open again.
The museum traces the history of Phoenix from the start of white settlement up until the present day.
In the meantime here is a pano I took there on their second last day.
Hope you enjoy.
