TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Organizers of a planned museum about basketball great Larry Bird in Terre Haute are starting to assemble thousands of items ahead of its expected opening next year.

The museum will be part of the new Terre Haute Convention Center, which remains under construction with an anticipated completion date of March 2022.

It will include items donated by Bird and others from his career with the Boston Celtics, Indiana State University and the U.S. Olympic team.

The site for work on cataloging the memorabilia is being modified for security and should be ready within weeks.
