Following a meeting today with community leaders, the Museum’s leadership team has made the decision to temporarily close the Museum to all visitors effective at the end of the day today. Our team will continue to monitor and reassess the situation.
With that said, the Museum’s staff members will continue to work onsite and remotely to assist with research requests, deep clean the entire facility, and perform site improvements. We are optimistic that this situation will improve as the community practices social distancing, proper hygiene including frequent hand washing, and warmer weather arrives.
This decision was made to put the health and safety of our staff, visitors, and the community as our top priority. The Museum has contingency plans in place to care for the multiple artifacts in the building should staff need to be off site for an extended period of time.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter and please follow the Museum’s social media for future updates as this situation evolves.
