It may be the eve of Pioneer Day, but don’t even think about visiting Pioneer Memorial Museum — it’s not open.

It hasn’t exactly been a secret, but many folks have been discovering the hard way that the museum operated by the International Society of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers (DUP) has been closed since May 3 for renovation.

The facility at 300 N. Main St., which sits across from the state Capitol, will be rededicated Oct. 8. But DUP President Bette Barton hopes the museum can reopen in early September.
