Reopening: What to Expect & How to

Plan Your Visit

 

A Word From Our Director…

 

 

 

 

     Covid-19 has changed us all. Whether we like it or not, things are not going to be the same for a long time, maybe ever. Because we are who we are, the impact of the 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak in our county is something we know; and we certainly hope that 100 years from now, the 2020 Covid-19 outbreak will have been a national story, with little local consequence. Although we miss seeing visitors, researchers, and certainly our members and friends, we want to do our part.
 
     The Museum will reopen on July 7, and we are looking forward to welcoming you back, but without risking your health or ours. Please come see us. Come see the changes we have made to our exhibits. Drop in to say hello and let us give you a tour. But please know that we have expectations. We expect you to wear a mask. We expect you to use our hand sanitizer. We expect you to maintain safe physical distance from us – for now, we will forgo the hugs! Rest assured we will extend the same courtesy to you. Warmest regards,
                                                                 ~ Linda Rippy, Executive Director

 

The Museum will be back to its regular operational hours starting Tuesday, July 7th. We have been working on many new projects inside the Museum, so there will be plenty of new exhibits to see and history to learn! Our top priority is the health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers. To ensure that your Museum experience is enjoyable and safe, see the information below on the safety measures we have in place per the recommendations of the CDC and Indiana Department of Health.

Important to Note: Our Children’s Farmers Market play area and Train Room will remian closed for now, we apologize for the inconcenience.
