We have many events to look forward to this year! As the Covid19 virus is still present within our area, with it comes the continued uncertainty of gatherings, spaces, travel and events. Please continue to check back for updates frequently.

The museum is now open by appointment only, and 24-hour advanced registration is required due to social distancing and capacity regulations. If you’d like to schedule a tour please visit our Schedule A Tour page.
