January Shutdown 2018

  • St. Charles History Museum 215 East Main Street St. Charles, IL, 60174 United States (map)

The St. Charles History Museum will be shutting down for three weeks in January, during which time we will be doing major maintenance and cleaning. This regular maintenance is a big part of ensuring that we are able to tell the most accurate and interesting stories about St. Charles history and be able to present the museum the best we can to the public.

Help is needed in shifts of 2 hours or more during the dates between Tuesday, January 9th, and Friday, February 9th, during the hours from 10am-4pm. Sign up to help move all of our textiles out of storage to be sorted and rehoused. We will also be deep cleaning and organize all spaces in the museum including the exhibit hall, the gift shop and all public spaces. All ages from 6th grade and up are welcome!

Below is the sign up sheet for all of the available times and date.
