The New Milford Historical Society and Museum announce that the museum will be closed to the public for tours during the months of January and February 2018. Along with the Curator and Registrar, a team of volunteers will be working on a collection storage rehabilitation project of the Main Gallery Attic. This project will include a major cleaning and re-organization of the museum’s primary collection storage area. Properly cleaning, cataloguing and re-housing the collection to create better access and to promote preservation of the collection according to professional curatorial standards is the goal.
Researchers can still make an appointment for access to our archives by calling the museum during regular business hours.
