Make two changes: 1:simpifily the name of your organization.   XXT&H Societies are old names from 30 years ago,hardly rolls of the tounge. 2: set up as a private for profit org. with paid help....forget the non-profit esp. with todays political climate. People made the company,you will need to cover that with your museum,not just an equipment display. That aspect alone will bring in regular visitors and families who's father or grand father worked there. You will need the AlCO personel files/records,to establish a data base for which you will charge people to research family.   I speak from expierence.
