Media outlets say the Roanoke museum announced the changes Monday during a news conference.
Museum officials say President and CEO David Mickenberg is stepping down to pursue other opportunities.
One of the museum’s benefactors, Nick Taubman, will serve as chairman of a new board of directors.
Advance Auto Parts has donated $150,000 to provide free admission and to continue the museum’s operations.
