Renovations are complete at the Santa Maria Valley Historical Society Museum.

The museum is celebrating its grand re-opening on Friday. 

It has been around since the 1950s and preserves and displays the history of people who have lived in the Santa Maria Valley.

The museum was closed late last year for the repairs and remodel, which City officials say used about $120,000 in Community Development Block Grant funds.

A ribbon-cutting at the museum, located at 616 S. Broadway, is taking place Friday afternoon followed by guided tours.

The remodel included a new roof and T-bar ceiling, heating and air-conditioning, LED lighting, vinyl floors and more.
