When the museum reopens later in February, its permanent exhibits and the temporary exhibit Papirklip: A Global and Traditional Art will again be on view, with an additional exhibit about the art of tattooing opening for Tivoli Fest on Memorial Day weekend.

Story Highlights

  • “Thanks to the generosity of a forward-thinking donor, we received a legacy gift which will allow us to refresh the flooring, change some gallery walls, and reconfigure a few office spaces,” said Executive Director Tova Brandt. “It is easiest for all involved and considerate to our guests to complete the work as quickly as possible during a traditionally slow period for tourism.”

  • Last year the museum welcomed approximately 3,500 visitors through its doors, with an additional 200 visitors to its Genealogy Center at 4210 Main Street. The Genealogy Center, which serves as the museum’s research library, has a small exhibit focused on local homesteading. The center will remain open for its usual hours of Tuesday — Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Museum staff will be available for emails and phone calls as usual, and the museum’s Design Store will be fulfilling orders received. The museum may be reached at or (712) 764-7001.
