A ribbon cutting ceremony took place Thursday to celebrate the upgraded and interactive exhibits added to the Jewel Cave National Monument's visitor center.
Bradley Block, chief of interpretation, says this project was two years in the making, with time spent planning, designing, and putting in the additions. The first center was built in 1972, so Block says it was time for a change."Over time generations change, people change, those expectations change, new knowledge about Jewel Cave changes, and so after 50 years, it's just the perfect time to upgrade our exhibits," said Block.
The exhibits were first introduced to the public in May and Bradley says the public response has been positive.
