Architects Laguaña + Cristobal was selected to design the 46,000 square foot Guam Museum, with three stories of exhibit space, archives and collections storage, theater, an outdoor theater and plaza, administrative offices, café and retail space.
Won by design competition in 2006, the new Guam Museum is located at a prominent site in the heart of Guam’s capital city of Hagatna. The museum is the newest public structure in the area to be built within the last 40 years. It is situated among such prominent and historic structures such as the Dulce Nombre de Maria Agana Cathedral-Basilica, the old Guam Congress Building, and the historic ruins of the Spanish colonial era Plaza de España.
Grand in scale, punctuated by an open air atrium that is skylit with an overhead arched vault that soars 65-feet in the air, the new museum showcases Guam’s culture, arts and history. Construction is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2016.
