Local News

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — A local attraction sets a date for its re-open after part of its facility flooded.

Burpee Museum will be closed until April 9th. Museum administrators say damage is more extensive than originally thought.

Flooding was caused after a pipe burst from freezing temperatures.

The museum flooded just three days before it was set to re-open earlier this month. Parts of the building had up to a foot and a half of water.
