Guam - It was last week Friday the Guam Economic Development Authority issued the notice to proceed for contractors Inland Builders Corporation to begin Phase II of the construction of the Guam Chamorro and Educational Facility in Hagatna.

The NTP was issued after Attorney General Leonardo Rapadas and Governor Eddie Calvo signed off on the building construction contract Friday. Today a press conference was held to provide an status update, with the governor saying, "This will be the crown jewel for the revitalization of Hagatna. Aside from its historical significance which will be the top notch museum of the Western Pacific."

The total cost for the project is $27 million.  The construction contract was awarded to Inland Builders.   The Guam Museum is set to boast many world class features to spotlight Guam's history and culture to include two floors of exhibition space, an indoor theater and an enclosed garden.

The Guam Museum is set to open in December 2014.
