Due to the rise in COVID cases, by law newer restrictions need to be put in place at our shop. Customer traffic is now limited to 15 customers in the main retail area. Face covering & use of hand sanitizer is required when entering the shop. The museum area will now be used as a waiting area, and limited to 8 people. We ask that people please not come in with large groups, and please limit their stays to under an hour, so others can have the opportunity to also do their shopping. We will also soon install an excellent outdoor heater, to make it much more comfortable for those who wish to wait outside. Thank you all for your continued support and understanding, during these difficult times. Together, we'll get through this!
We welcome local schools and clubs to choose our museum as a destination for their field trip or outing. As always, visiting our museum collection is absolutely free of charge.
A few things we'd like to call attention to:
Please call at least one week in advance during store hours to schedule your group visit and read our guidelines below before scheduling your group visit.
Remember that all visits are self-guided, and that each group is responsible for the conduct of its members.
Make sure to have an appropriate number of adult chaperones for your group. Minors must be accompanied by an adult both in the store and in the museum.
Due to space limitations, groups of more than twenty people (including chaperones) are not permitted in the museum all at once. If your group is larger than twenty people, we ask that you divide the group so that one portion can enjoy shopping upstairs in our store while others see the museum collection in the basement, alternating with each other.
The storefront is wheelchair accessible; however the museum is only accessible on foot by a staircase.
No strollers are permitted in the museum.
Photography is permitted on a case-by-case basis.
