Hurricane Matthew introduced several inches of water into the museum. All of the items on exhibit were taken upstairs to curatorial storage to prevent mold growth. The park is re-designing these exhibits for display. We expect the museum to be ready to showcase some of the exhibit redesigns by the 4th of July, and others to be ready by the fall.
We thank everyone for their patience as we work through this process.
The park's museum is located on Osborne Street in downtown St Marys and is staffed by volunteers. The museum is open daily from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. On Saturdays, it opens at 10:00 a.m.
