The Museum is temporarily closed. County Executive Laura Curran has made the decision to temporarily close all public museums, recreational facilities, preserves and historic sites. We support this decision, which was taken as a precautionary measure, to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

We will continue to communicate with local and state agencies on a daily basis and will keep you all updated on Museum operations.

Our typical hours are available on this downloadable calendar for future reference.
