The Newcomerstown building that houses the museum was bought by Colorado-based vice president of the association Jack Guilian and his wife Carol. Presented by the Museum of American History and Heritage of Radford University and Blacksburg Historical Society. The city of Blackburg became a tourist attraction again at the beginning of the 20th century.
After Gu finished the sculpture, he said that it took up a lot of space in his apartment, so he decided to contact the museum to see if they were interested in using it for educational purposes. Parsons said there was interest from Radford University's Museum of American History and Heritage and Blacksburg Historical Society to take over the project, but the group did not have the volunteers or financial resources to take over the project. After visiting the museums before donating the sculptures, Pritchard invited Gu to a museum in Martinsville where he saw fossilized dinosaur bones. So he agreed to accept it as part of a permanent exhibition, and Gu traveled to Martinville to take his sculptures to the galleries of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., and the Natural History Museum in Boston.
In the end, it was unanimously decided to transfer the Radford Museum to the USS Orleck (DD-86), and in June 2011 the contents of the museum were introduced. The building was prepared and tailored for the museum with the help of several Radford sailors who had travelled to the museum. Dr. Milton Brockmeyer, a local dentist, created the 8o-26 layout in collaboration with his wife Willie Brock Meyer and Dr.-Dr. William H. Pritchard, professor of history and director of the university's Museum of American History.
The design is based on fossilised allosaur bones, and Radford Museum of Earth Sciences helped build the 8o-26 building and the interior and exterior design of the building. The museum's dinosaur artwork, a collection of over 1,000 pieces, was created by a group of students from the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Virginia, the Virginia Institute of Natural History and other institutions.
The exhibition will be held at the Radford University Art Museum in Tyler, 214 Tyler Street in Radford, Virginia. In the meantime, visitors can see the works of art delivered to the gallery of the museum on the second floor of building 8o-26 and the exhibition that is displayed in the exhibition hall of the gallery.
