DENVER — A museum in Denver more than 100 years old now has a new home thanks to a very precarious move.

The Kirkland Museum was transported very slowly from East 13th Avenue and Pearl Street to West 12th Avenue and Bannock Street on Sunday.

The one-mile move was in the planning stages for three years.

Special beams were used to support the museum, along with eight sets of articulated sheels.

Cars had to be moved, and some wires and street signs had to be temporarily taken down.

The relocation closed several roads as the museum was moved. Officials hope the museum will open at its new location next fall.
