Reopening our doors on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 - The History Center Washington County - West Bend, WI


*The event has already taken place on this date: Wed, 06/10/2020
We are excited to announce that we are reopening our doors on Wednesday, June 10, 2020. Until further notice, the Old Courthouse Museum will be open on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. The Old Jailhouse Museum will remain closed indefinitely due to the inability to adhere to healthcare experts' social distancing guidelines while touring the building. To keep our staff, volunteers, and visitors safe, we will encourage the following behavior:

-maintain proper social distancing
-wear a mask while visiting the museum and Research Center
-be kind and show patience
-utilize the hand sanitation stations

The number of visitors allowed in the museum at one time will be limited to assist with social distancing efforts. All visitors will be directed on a one-way path through the museum and are asked to wait until the group ahead of them has moved on before entering the next room. Signage will indicate wait points. The History Center will follow healthcare experts' guidance on group sizes as they change.

Many of the Touch Time and interactive components of exhibits will be removed.

The Research Center will be opening by appointment only Wednesdays and Fridays from 11:00 am- 5:00 pm. Please contact the Research Center directly to schedule your appointment at research@historyisfun.com of 262-335-4678.

While The History Center is doing everything possible to keep the building clean and sanitary, we cannot guarantee a germ-free environment. Therefore, we are not liable for any illnesses that may be contracted from the museum environment.
