Senator Patty Murray was there for the celebration. The REACH cost more than $6 million to construct along Columbia Park Trail in Richland. It has three main exhibits, two permanent ones focus on wildlife and the Manhattan project, with the third as a rotating gallery for touring shows.
"It's agricultural history, it's cultural history, it's amazing landscape and why it is here, and plus the history of World War II and why our country won and what this community contributed to it," said Senator Patty Murray.
The center will officially open to the public on the Fourth of July.
