An exhibit called Prehistoric Giants marks the opening of the North Carolina Museum of Forestry in Whiteville Saturday.

WHQR’s Michelle Bliss reports that after closing its doors for nearly two years for renovations, the museum is up and running once again.

Museum Director Harry Warren says that earlier this year in the midst of the renovations, the museum got the ax in one of Governor Bev Perdue’s initial budget drafts.
