- ​{{tag>​Propworx ​Trekcetera ​props auction}}+**Auctioning museum holdings.** Axanar producer Alec Peters and his supporters led a successful crowdfunding effort to save the [[:​trekcetera_museum|Trekcetera ​Museum]] in Canada, only to see the place [[https://​www.drumhellermail.com/​news/​31474-trekcetera-museum-closes|shut down]]. But Peters got to take advantage of the opportunity to auction ​off the museum’s holdings of memorabilia from Star Trek and other media.
  
 +===== Auction =====
 +
 +Peters told //Axanar: Confidential//​ viewers May 6 he was heading to Canada to oversee photographing and cataloging the museum'​s holdings on the weekend of May 11-12, 2019, to prepare them for auction.
 +
 +The museum tried to make a go of it by leaving its original home in Vulcan, Alberta, in favor of the larger nearby town, Drumheller. Despite its popularity — making it into Travel Advisor’s top 10 museums in Canada — the museum never brought in enough revenue to restructure its debt in order stay open.
