SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico State University history professor Jon Hunner has been tapped to serve as interim director of the New Mexico History Museum and the Palace of the Governors

Hunner will start in early May after the spring semester.

The museum's current director, Frances Levine, will be heading to St. Louis this spring to take over at the Missouri History Museum. Her last day is March 16, when the exhibition Cowboys Real and Imagined is set to close.

The New Mexico museum's board of regents has established a search committee for a permanent director. A national search will be conducted.

Hunner served as a consultant on the development of the New Mexico History Museum, which opened in 2009. He also worked as an exhibition preparer for the Museum of Fine Arts.
