I did hear that the old sign from the much loved and missed Voyager Restaurant, went to the museum after it was taken down when the Marriott re-developed. The buiding was, I believe the first hotel on Marco. Can any of the experts confirm this?

The ball really started rolling Jan 2008 when a donation of $1.5M was announced to build the museum. It has been a long time in coming and was scheduled to open prior to the peak season 2010.

This museum should be a must see .. for those interested in culture,and history.

Here is a link to the news release from 2008.
