Summer Hours

The museum is open Friday through Wednesday from 10 a.m. Until 4 p.m. There is no charge for visiting but donations are sincerely appreciated (and needed).

We have docents who will be happy to give you a very informative tour of the facilities, and, if you are very good, you may go into the restoration shop, something generally not allowed in other museums.
