SEATTLE — Seattle’s Museum of History and Industry is scheduled to start work in January on renovation of the old Naval Reserve Armory on south Lake Union for the museum’s new home.

Construction work on a new Highway 520 floating bridge is forcing the museum to move from its location near the University of Washington.

The Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce reports the move will restore the historic landmark armory that was built in the 1940s.
