BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) -- A museum celebrating showman P.T. Barnum has reopened as work continues to repair damage caused by the tornado that hit Bridgeport in 2010.
The museum that sustained millions of dollars' worth of damage will be open two days a week beginning Thursday.
Visitors will be able to see many of the artifacts that have already been restored and watch as a conservator works on others that were damaged by the tornado.
Kathy Maher is executive director and curator for The Barnum Museum. She said the idea is to consider the building itself as a work of art.
It is expected to take another two years to complete the restoration.
Built in the 1890s, the building is owned by the city and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
