Our season of operation is Mother’s Day through mid-October. During the season, we are open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The museum is operated by volunteers. If you find the museum closed during normal hours, please visit the Union City Hall across the street and ask that they call a museum volunteer to open for you. October 1, 2013: Due to roof damage from a recent hail and rain storm, the museum has closed for the season a couple of weeks early. However, our presentation by historian Mike Hanley and annual meeting, 7 p.m. on October 11, is being held in the Little White Church across the street and will go on as scheduled. Please join us for a fun evening.
