Now that the building will be torn down, what will happen to Insights Museum?

Through a partnership with El Paso Independent School District, Insights Museum stored most of their exhibits at Alamo Elementary in the Segundo Barrio.

The chairman of their board of directors Dr. Aaron Velasco said it was a challenge to move all of their exhibits in such a short time.

He said they hope to open at Alamo Elementary in six to nine months, but as of now, they do not have a permanent home.

"I believe strongly that there shouldn't be any gap whatsoever. I'm frustrated that this has pushed so forward that we haven't been able to plan accordingly so that there is no gap but that's beyond my control. We are committed to serving the children of El Paso," said Velasco.

Velasco said its Danny Olivas exhibit is being held at the New Mexico Space History Museum.

He said the city is interested in buying their 100 year old tower clock to put it on display at the ballpark. It's being appraised now, but he said it's worth $30,000 to $40,000.
