What an emotional ride these last few months have been. From all of us at the History Center, we hope that you are continuing to stay safe and healthy. We have certainly missed seeing you and we are thrilled to be reopening our doors on Wednesday, August 12th. We will offer special, Members Only hours Wednesday through Saturday, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. We will be open to the general public Wednesday through Saturday, from 12:30 to 3:30 PM.

While we have been closed, we have been working hard to transform the History Center. We have a new floor in our Great Hall, and new exhibits for you to see!

Our community has also experienced many changes since March. Many people are struggling with unemployment and uncertainty. Because we believe in the power of our past to shape and define our region’s future, we want history to be accessible to everyone. For this reason, we are proud to announce that we are reducing our admission rates.

Adult admission is now $5; while tickets for students, seniors, and military personnel are $3. We also want to show our support for people who are working especially hard to serve our community, so first responders, healthcare workers, and educators can also visit the History Center for the $3 discounted rate. Just show your ID badge at the front desk! Members and children under 12 are, of course, free!

Be sure to visit our website for more information on what to expect when you visit the History Center. We’re looking forward to seeing all of you, soon!
