(Cleveland) - Recent flooding has closed the Baseball Heritage & Broadcast Museum in the Colonial Arcade downtown.
The museum's curator says the area where the broadcast museum is located is not repairable and much of the baseball memorabilia has been damaged.
An overhead water pipe burst but was not detected for several days, allowing 8 inches of water to collect on the floor, and causing the ceiling to cave in.
Jim Davison tells Newsradio WTAM 1100 the artifacts that can be salvaged are being cleaned and boxed up and that the museum needs a new home.
Davison explains that they are exploring the possibilty of moving the collection to Kent State University, but are considering any offer that might be made. He can be contacted at 216-832-9564.
Davison says they had been working on a local television special about the museum but that is being put on hold because of the extensive damage done.
