Dear Members and Friends,
I hope this note finds you and your loved ones healthy. As you can imagine, we were disappointed to be unable to open our doors for the season, but we are monitoring the situation daily and stand ready to welcome visitors as soon as health and government officials determine it is safe to do so.
In the meantime, I wanted to reach out with a few updates and shareways you can support the museumnow, more than ever. These are uncharted waters for all of us, but I'm confident we will emerge stronger together.
Colleen Schafroth Executive Director
Use of Museum Gardens & Grounds
Some of you have asked about using the museum grounds while we are closed. Unfortunately, we are not able to open the grounds at this time. Since we are not open to the public we cannot monitor the grounds to ensure safety for visitors, nor do we have outdoor restroom facilities. Thank you for your understanding.
We are making every effort to reschedule the fabulous programs we have planned for 2020. Please follow us on Facebook or check ourwebsite calendarfor updates as they become available.
