Murray County Museum Opening By Appointment

Following new guidelines set by Minnesota, the Murray County Museum will be opening to the public by appointment on June 16th. Researchers and visitors must call ahead at 507-836-6533 or email Tours of the Dinehart Holt House, Wornson Cabin, and Sierk Building are still postponed until a later date.

The Murray County Museum will be open by appointment Tuesday through Friday from 10 am – 5 pm. If you must come on a Saturday, call early to set up an appointment so staff can plan for it.

When you visit please bring and wear a mask.  No more than 10 visitors will be allowed in the museum at one time. Hand sanitizer and hand washing are available at the museum. Social distancing signage has been established on the floors. Since our life-sized poster of baseball player, Jit Lowe, is about 6 ft. tall, we ask visitors to stay a “Jit” away from each other when touring the museum.
