Upcoming Events

Our regular hours are Tuesday-Friday from 1-4 p.m., and we are featuring newly renovated exhibit spaces on the second floor of our building. We also have a children's room that is a hands-on space for kids to play with toys from the past and present.

March to December, we hold monthly FREE programs. Follow us on Facebook or check out out Events page on this website to see what is coming up in 2024!


In 2023 we inaugurated a new monthly event: 2nd Saturday Coffee Hours from 9-11 a.m. on the 2nd Saturday of each month. The museum will be open and is free on these Saturdays, but donations are welcome. Coffee and baked goods will be available, and you are welcome to explore the museum or just sit and chat with your friends!
