CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Officials in Charleston will provide an update on the $75 million International African-American Museum planned for the city where the Civil War began.

Mayor Joe Riley and other officials are to meet with reporters on Tuesday to discuss the project. The Post and Courier of Charleston reported Tuesday that the announcement involves a new location for the museum on the Charleston waterfront not far from the original site across from the South Carolina Aquarium.

The project was first proposed 13 years ago. Officials have said they hope construction could begin next year with the museum opening in 2018.

The museum is to focus on telling the story of black Americans with interactive displays and changing exhibits.
