The Harbor History Museum could open to the public by summer.

It isn’t definite, but the group behind the 14,500-square-foot, waterfront museum says it’s possible. After receiving some large donations in recent months, the Harbor History Museum has raised $9.68 million toward its $11.4 million goal.

Jennifer Kilmer, the museum’s executive director, said the group is trying to sell a building that’s located near the future museum.

“If we’re able to sell the property within the next few months, I’m hopeful we can open this by summer,” she said today.

To find out more about the project or to make a donation, visit the museum’s Web site.
