After further deliberation on the current situation concerning the spread of the Covid-19 virus, the Board of Directors and Executive Director have decided to close the museum to all. Per Governor Ever’s Emergency Order #12 the “Safer at Home” order, we will not reopen until Friday, April 24. We will continue to comply with any emergency orders issued.

The Executive Director will be the only staff member working a limited schedule from the museum during the duration of the order. The staff will be performing their duties from home so we can continue to offer our programs and exhibits once the order is terminated. If you need to contact the museum or staff, please visit the Contact Page or About Us page. Please continue to monitor our happenings here or on Facebook. We appreciate your understanding during this historic time.

We hold the health of our staff, volunteers and visitors in the highest regard and understand that if we are going to get through this we must make the decision that best protects our community from further infections. Please remember to do your part during this historic moment, it will be talked about by historians  one hundred years from now. We can not wait to see you again and please stay healthy.

Thank you,

Paul Rudnick
Board President

Executive Director
