The Smoky Hill Museum will return to pre-pandemic hours starting Tuesday, June 1, 2021. Hours had been temporary reduced to provide safety measures to protect visitors and guests.
“We are excited to return to our longer hours,” says Museum Director Susan Hawksworth. “Now that the public is more comfortable getting out and about, we wanted to give them ample time to visit the Museum.”
Museum staff will continue with heightened cleaning, and the Museum and its galleries have been treated with Prevent X, a long-lasting antimicrobial that provides continuous surface protection in between regular cleaning and disinfecting. In addition, all interactive elements will soon be available.
Visitors will also be able to view the new exhibit, The Crossroads, which celebrates the birth, growth and change of downtown Salina. Special thanks go to the exhibit sponsors – Cargill, Hutton, Pestinger Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc., United Capital Management and Salina Blue – who helped make this exhibit possible.
The Smoky Hill Museum is a nationally accredited history museum in the heart of downtown Salina, Kansas. The FREE museum is open Tuesday-Friday 11-5 and Saturday 10-5. Stop by the Museum Store for a wide variety of regional and Kansas products, local artwork and gifts for all ages.
