Help Tune up the Tavern!
On Friday, January 9th, multiple pipes burst in museum’s collections storage area, causing water damage throughout the three stories of the 1785 building. Since the pipe burst, the Museum has been closed to tours so that the walls, ceilings, and floors could dry. The City is addressing the damage caused to the building itself and plaster work is well underway. We need your help to support additional needs, including:
- Conservation of collection's objects
- Replacement of archival boxes
- Replenishment of lost revenue
This lost revenue supports our on-going educational and preservation efforts, but more importantly, covers the salaries of two critical staff – the Curator of Collections & Curator of Education.
Please consider a donation to help us Tune Up the Tavern so we can open and get back to what we do best – sharing with the public the hospitality stories of the 18th and 19th centuries.
Plus join us for our Spring2ACTion Happy Hour from 6:30 - 8:30pm on April 22nd + help us earn extra funds!
