There's a new plan to keep the Pioneers Museum in Colorado Springs open.
The city owns the downtown landmark, and for 70 years has funded it. Recent budget cuts have threatened to close it.
Earlier this year, a consultant was brought in through a private donation to look at the problem. Tuesday, museum directors announced a plan to keep the history alive.
Matt Mayberry, the museum director says, '' We're proposing a new plan in which we create a non-profit organization that leads the institution, raises funds for the institution, in partnership with the city of Colorado Springs.''
Mayberry says admission will still be free and that they hope to expand the museum to include more events. Click here to learn more about the changes.
