A $23 million expansion is underway at the South Carolina State Museum in Columbia; set to be completed by April 2014.

The additions, partially paid with private and public funds, include an observatory, planetarium and a 4-D movie theater that museum spokesman Tut Underwood said will give the museum a lot of versatility.
