Leaders seek higher profile for museum



OWENSBORO, Ky.

Owensboro officials were inspired by another city in trying to raise the profile of the International Bluegrass Music Museum in the western Kentucky city.

After a trip to Dubuque, Iowa, Mayor Ron Payne told the Owensboro Messenger-
Inquirer
he’d like to see Owensboro do with the bluegrass museum what Dubuque has done with its National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium.

“They are working to make it a national museum, really putting Dubuque on the map,” said Payne, a member of the committee. “I’m convinced we have an opportunity to do something with our bluegrass museum.”
