Road Construction Update:

Currently there are two projects occurring near the Museum, but the Neville Public Museum is open!  Museum Place is closed from Walnut Street indefinitely due to a City project in Veterans Memorial Park.  Starting Monday, March 1, 2021 the Main Street Bridge will be closed for maintenance for about a week.  It is our understanding that barricades will be in place at the intersection of Dousman and Broadway. As patrons you will be able to access our parking lot by approaching on Dousman and turning right on to Museum Place and left into the parking lot.  We very much appreciate your support and apologize for this inconvenience.
