The plan for a museum in New York City that would focus on climate and climate change, with exhibits that could relate to health, social justice and rain-delayed baseball games, moved a step forward Monday, officials said.

The state’s Board of Regents, meeting in Albany, approved a five-year provisional charter for the museum, Tom Dunn, a spokesman for the board, said.

Miranda Massie, executive director of the Climate Museum Launch Project, said the museum was now “empowered to hold collections in trust for the public.”

The emphasis will be on solutions, she said.

Ms. Massie acknowledges that not everyone accepts climate change as a fact but says all are welcome.

The next step after the regents’ approval, she said, is some fund-raising.
