July 10th Update

The Museum Center at 430 W. Clay Ave. will reopen July 6th. Public hours will be Monday, Wednesday, & Friday from 10:00am-4:00pm and Tuesday & Thursday from 11:00am-4:00pm. We hope the limited hours will be expanded week to week once we are able to assess capacity and other limitations.

The Historic Sites reopen July 9th. Hours of operation will be Thursday through Monday 10:00am-4:00pm and Sunday 1:00-4:00pm. See below for safety precautions and special hours.


As the Lakeshore Museum Center phases into reopening here are the main steps we are taking to help provide the best and safest experience for both our guests and staff. Steps include:

  • requiring facemasks for everyone 3 years of age and older 

  • requiring physical distancing between groups of at least 6 feet

  • a max capacity of guests in each building

  • providing directional signage for best route through exhibits

  • providing extra hand-sanitizer stations

  • cleaning high-touch surfaces regularly

  • drinking fountains will be turned off, so we ask that visitors bring their own re-sealable water bottles

  • having only one hands-on room open per day at the Museum Center 

  • limiting the Museum Center capacity to 32 guests

  • limiting tour sizes to 6 guests from the same household at the Hackley and Hume Historic Site; tours offered at the top of the hour.

  • Limiting the Fire Barn Museum capacity to 6 guests 

  • Limiting the Scolnik House capacity of the Depression Era to 6 guests

We cannot wait to see you, but please if you are feeling unwell in any way, wait to visit until you are feeling better.
