More welcome news: museum set to re-open Tuesday

This Tuesday, July 7 will see another step toward normalcy for the area as the La Porte County Historical Society re-opens its museum, located at 2405 Indiana Ave. in La Porte.

Modified hours will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, until further notice.

“In order to protect the public, museum staff, and volunteers from COVID-19, certain restrictions
will be in place,” said Michele Barber, assistant director. “Masks are required of all visitors upon entering the building, and everyone will be required to wear masks for the entire duration of their visit at the museum. Gloves and hand sanitizer will be available to all visitors.”

If there are special circumstances that make the wearing of a mask difficult, or if these restrictions should interfere with the public’s enjoyment of their visit, the historical society recommends postponing the visit until such time as restrictions can be eased.

All visitors will be required to complete screening questions for each member in their party. Visitors will be required to call ahead if there are more than five persons in their party.

Individuals are still able to use the Fern Eddy Schultz Research Library and people are still encouraged to donate items to the museum; however, the public is asked to call 219-324-6767 to schedule an appointment.

“The La Porte County Historical Society appreciates the public’s cooperation in this matter, and is looking forward to serving the public again,” Barber said.
