    We had such a great day at the Museum during Saturday's Chocolate Tour as we welcomed nearly 400 visitors in search of chocolate! Thanks, Downtown Excelsior Partnership, for this great opportunity to share some of our Museum's story, give a bookmark "teaser" about an upcoming display, "Women Vote," and spread the word about our next big event -- Trivia Night on March 21! We appreciate your support! And we really appreciate all the volunteers (some pictured here) who make it all happen! Pictured: Mary Pierson, who attached 400 chocolate hearts to the "Women Vote!" bookmarks, Jean Ann O'Dell and Brenda Spicer, who talked Trivia, and the beautiful membership table (staffed by Dynamo Deb Foster, who isn't pictured because she was taking the photos!) ...

    Pardon Our Dust! The Museum will reopen on a three-day schedule on Saturday, Feb. 1! We welcome visitors on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday until April 1, when we'll return to our normal five-day schedule. Our volunteers have been working hard during our "winter break." Al and Darryl are installing new flooring on the bank's west side (showcase area -- NOT covering up the beautiful travertine that is original to the building!) A bad patch in the floor on the Francis side has been repaired. The Morse mantel and mirror are rejoined and stunning! A new display of medical equipment is in place on the Francis side. Display cases have been cleaned, and some are awaiting new displays! Ready or not, we'll be open this Saturday from 11-4! ... See MoreSee Less
