Miss Mary’s Museum Hosts Open House
Committee members at Miss Mary’s Museum would like to announce a Spring Open House to kick off our summer season at the museum. We are open every week during our regular hours: Tuesday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and at any time by appointment. In addition we will be open through the Memorial Day weekend for our Open House, and would like to invite everyone, including out-of-town visitors, to stop by during the hours listed below:
Sat. May 28th: 1:00-7:00 p.m.
Sunday May 29th: 2:00-6:00 p.m.
Monday May 30th: 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Please contact Sylvia Barney at 529-3673 if you need to make an appointment to visit the museum at a time other than our regular visiting hours. The museum is located in the old Presbyterian Church on the corner of 100 East, 200 South, Salina, Utah.
We have recently added a few new displays to the museum, as well as additional histories and photos. We also have new spotlighting, internet access, a TV and DVD player, printer/copy machine and a computer. With the addition of the new printer/copy machine, we now have the ability to make copies of our pioneer histories for those who desire that service. We are also able to show DVDs of historical interest to our visitors.
Work is being completed on a new perennial garden to the south of the museum and other improvements to the grounds. Maintenance and repair work will also be completed on the bell and the exterior of the building in the near future.
Last fall we were able to install new blinds and curtains throughout the museum, which has added so much to the appearance of the interior, as well as the preservation of our artifacts.
New additions to the museum have been funded in part by the Utah Arts and Museums Division. We’re very appreciative of their financial assistance and support, as these additions would not be possible without the help of various grant monies.
