Due to the massive fire at the Cooper Street development directly across the river from our location, the Museum and the Bike Lab were closed on July 23. The fire has since been declared arson by the Waltham Fire Department.
Here is the July 23 statement from the Museum:
IMPORTANT: The Charles River Museum will be CLOSED TODAY due to the ongoing situation with the fire across the river from our location. Additionally, there will be no Watch City Bike Lab today.
We urge everyone to stay clear of the area today so that emergency efforts can proceed without interference.
We wish to extend our wishes to the members of the Waltham Fire Department, and to the Waltham Police Department, that they remain safe while dealing with this situation and thank them for their constant diligence and fine work.
