A beautiful museum (and better appealing area of Brattleboro) would attract VT and out of state patrons to local businesses. People would likely eat lunch or dinner, craft beers, stop at mocha joes, Sam’s, etc.

I’d also think that it could motivate local businesses or developers to invest in Brattleboro.

I’d think a museum would also support the local culture… schools, people who are interested in the space. This is an area where where local government invests. Private companies don’t create museums.
