BBHC Has New Director

Laramie, WY – The Buffalo Bill Historical Center has a new director. Bruce Eldredge who is the current CEO of the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture in Spokane, Washington will begin his work at the end of January.

He says Buffalo Bill is one of the top 50 museums in the country and taking over the museum is one of his dreams. Eldredge says one of his goals is to modernize the experience at the museum and make sure the museum continues to be relevant.

Eldredge has worked at a number of museums that focus on western works and has been heavily involved in fundraising in the past.
