This exciting project is off to a great start, and there are many ways that you can become involved. Using this website you can send us your comments and ideas, volunteer to help out, make an online donation, become a member of the museum or sign up to receive updates through our email newsletter.

Beginning April 19, the museum will be open on the third Saturday of each month from noon to 4 p.m. The museum is recruiting volunteers to staff the building and will add operating hours as soon as we have volunteers to staff it.
