Thank you for your patience while the museum closed in February to the public. We wanted time to complete some projects on our “To-Do List” without having our guests’ visits impeded.
- Staff and volunteers trained in collections care. We assessed artifacts, wrote condition reports, photographed, labeled, wrapped, and placed them in storage.
- We updated our Native West gallery. It is our policy here at the museum to rotate artifacts every 5 to 10 years to maintain their integrity. New information was incorporated into labels and stored artifacts were selected and displayed.
- Maintenance projects completed included installing a new sump pump and water heater. Hand rails were adjusted to become more ADA-accessible. Finally our mobile shelving units received labels to denote artifact location in the database.I think we can say that we used our time well during our February closure. Our winter hours continue until Memorial Day. Visit the museum to see our updates 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
