Union County Museum Will Not Open for Regular Visitor Hours This Year

After a great deal of consideration over what is best for museum visitors, volunteers and the longevity of the museum itself, the board of directors of the Union County Museum Society regrets to announce they will not be opening to visitors during the 2020 museum season. Traditionally, the museum opens for the season on Mother’s Day, and closes the end of September.

“Due to the CORVID-19 pandemic and the precautions under way to reduce its spread, rather than opening to the public on a regular schedule, we have decided to use the 2020 season to upgrade the facilities, freshen exhibits, and work on programing,” said Nod Palmer, President. “This will keep volunteers and patrons safe and allow the board members and volunteers to work behind the scenes and prepare the museum for an even better visitor experience in 2021.”

Volunteers are always needed and welcome, and this season will be no different. While there will be few interactions with the public, activities will range from continuing upkeep to working on new projects. To learn more about volunteering opportunities, please contact Linda Bond, Museum Society Secretary, or call 541.562.5061.

Your support is still needed and appreciated. Please continue your membership or join the museum society and help sustain our purpose and goals while we are not generating income through admission fees. Learn more about membership by emailing Carol,

The Union County Museum is located at 333 South Main Street in Union. An all-volunteer effort by a small but very dedicated group of individuals, the museum is owned and operated by the Union County Museum Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.
