COVID-19 Resources & information
Public Re-opening of Museum & Gift Shop
We look forward to welcoming you back. Updates about our reopening date will be posted on our website as well as our Facebook page.
The ability to minimize risk and protect the safety of our Volunteers, Guests and Staff will drive all decisions. We’re implementing new safety protocols including, but not limited to, requiring face masks for everyone who enters the facility, limiting the number of people in the building and increasing our rigorous cleaning procedures.
Read more about our guidelines and requirements pertaining to visitor safety, protective equipment, hygiene, cleaning, and procedures and protocol for ill or potentially ill staff, volunteers and guests in our COVID-19 POLICY.
In the meantime, consider a Self-Guided Tour by Appointment.
Starting July 17, as the first step towards re-opening, we will begin offering scheduled museum access to our Members (for FREE!) and the public (starting at $25). This opportunity will include a two-hour block of reserved time in the Driftless Historium for you and your party (maximum of six if in one household; maximum of four if a mixed household group).

Changes to Events and Programs
Previously scheduled 2020 on-site events have been canceled or transitioned to another format. In addition, we are adding virtual events to our calendar, and finding creative ways to engage with our community and share the Driftless Historium's outdoor, downtown spaces. For questions about upcoming events and opportunities, check out EVENTS page or email firstname.lastname@example.org or 608.437.6486.
