Territorial Prison Wax Museum - Closed

I was just visiting Virginia City, NV, (May 8, 1998) the Territorial Prison Wax Museum is no longer open. The place looks empty.I spoke with a couple of the nearby shopkeepers, they said that the owners have emptied out the building and that they're apparently doing some kind of work to the inside. They didn't know what was being done, though.
