The Mason County Museum reopened March 1 after a two month winter closing. The museum is now open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. If you haven’t been to the museum (or haven’t been there lately), you’re really missing a special treat. The museum is a vast collection of artifacts, stories, pictures, antiques, displays and more that describe how Mason County was settled and what life was like in Mason County during those settlement years. Spend as much or as little time as you have while you take a trip back in time. And don’t think you can see it all in one visit – there’s always something different to find!
The Museum is located at 505 Moody St. on the second floor. Special showing are available for large groups and bus tours. For special arrangements, call the Chamber of Commerce (347-5758) or Delores Keller at 347-6681.
