Construction Master Plan for the
Museum and Learning Center
at White Sands Missile Range
The Historical Foundationís
primary mission is to raise money for a permanent Museum and Learning
Center at White Sands Missile Range that will preserve and exhibit the
artifacts and archival materials necessary to memorialize and document the events, organizations,
corporations, and individuals who contributed to the history of
outstanding achievements at White Sands Missile Range.
The Construction Master Plan developed for the Foundation by Studio D
Architects provides a phased approach that accommodates expansion in
approximately $1 million increments, ensures continuity of Museum operation
with the addition of functionally complete increments and retention of the
temporary Exhibit Hall until the start of Phase III construction.
Phase 0 is the completed Administration and Gift Shop addition that was
jointly funded by the Foundation and White Sands Missile Range. The
7,971 square foot Phase I
is an environmentally controlled Exhibit Hall and entrance lobby. Phase
II provides a 10,948 Square foot additional Exhibit Hall space and a Theater. Phase III is a
8,743 square foot Resource and Learning Center, which will house the Archival Holdings and
provide viewing and study areas for researchers and students.
