Plan now for our Grand Opening the last weekend of October 2016.

We will be curating all summer, so bear with us, as this will be a creative time. But the entire collection will be at this one location for your viewing. Just all the labeling may be in flux.

We are open six days a week. 11 AM to 4 PM, with doors locked at 3:30 PM. No admissions during last 30 minutes. We may open late, depending on Thompson’s Point happenings. Check here or the door there, you are in the neighborhood for one of the other sites’ events.

We are closed on Tuesdays.

Adults: $10 per person

Seniors 65+:  $8 per person

Our relocation to our newly-built Thompson’s Point museum peaks with our Grand Opening Celebration scheduled for later in 2016.

Our building and move is, in part, thanks to a grant from the

Efroymson Family Fund.
