Plan Your Visit

The well-being of our visitors, staff, and volunteers is our highest priority. We have adapted our visitor experience for your safety and enjoyment while meeting new health guidelines and safety standards.

Until further notice, we areoOpen Monday through Fridays; closed Saturdays

Every Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to noon, is for high-risk visitors only


Please note the following changes that apply to everyone:

  • If you have flu-like COVID symptoms (such as fever or chills and shortness of breath), please stay home for now.
  • All visitors must wear face masks. Exceptions: those under two years old and anyone who has trouble breathing or is incapacitated. No mask? No problem. We’ll provide you with a free, one-time-use mask.
  • We’re limiting the number of visitors at one time, based on maximum capacities and social distancing. If you happen to arrive when we’re at maximum capacity, we’ll ask you to patiently wait until we have room for additional visitors. We’re also limiting visiting groups and families to five people or less, in order to maintain social distancing.
  • Please leave personal belongings and strollers in your car. Purses are okay.

Social Distancing

  • Please enter through the front door and exit through  the side (east) door. This keeps interactions to a  minimum. Anyone needing assistance to visit (such  as those using wheelchairs or walkers), ring the east door doorbell and we’ll come open it for you.
  • Please practice social distancing while in the  museum. If you visit with children, keep them  nearby and socially distanced. If you visit with a  group, please stay together.
  • Restroom use will be limited to one person at a time or one family/group. Ask for a restroom key.
  • Our store is closed because social distancing is impossible there.
  • If you’re a researcher, please email, call, or mail in research or photo questions and requests, due to the small size of our library and the inability to social distance.
  • All hands-on items in our exhibit hall have been temporarily removed.
  • All historic buildings will be closed since social distancing inside is impossible. The grounds are still open for your enjoyment.

You Should Know

  • All museum staff and volunteers will be wearing face masks, social distancing, practicing good hygiene, and cleaning and disinfecting the museum’s public areas multiple times each day.
  • You can help us by providing feedback about our COVID-related practices. Thanks!
