Fort Knox says the main exhibit at the General George Patton Museum of Leadership is being closed as the facility undergoes major renovations.
In a statement, the central Kentucky Army post also says hours at the museum will be reduced as crews work to transform the facility over the next seven months.
A re-opening is planned next year on June 14 — the 238th birthday of the U.S. Army.
The $2.3 million renovation was prompted when the U.S. Army Armor School was moved from Fort Knox to Fort Benning, Ga., last year. During the move, several tank artifacts were taken from the Patton Museum, so the focus of the facility was changed to Army leadership from 1775 to current times.
