- The Museum will be closed until further notice pending guidance issued by the State of Michigan and the CDC. This action is to support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19.
- Behind the scenes, we are currently updating our listing of New Buffalo area veterans. Once our list is complete a new exhibit will be constructed in the WWII Pullman car on the Museum Grounds. If you or a family member has served, please complete the form on this site – click here for access
- No landline. Because we are closed until further notice in the wake of COVID-19, we opted to reduce expenses where we could our phone line was our first option so save. A cell phone number has been published for emergency/critical need issues.
- New Buffalo, like many lakefront communities suffered from flooding this year. The museum fell victim to heavy rains and a high water table. We lost all our utilities in the Museum depot basement (a/c, furnace, hot water). We have replaced all through insurance and a small grant. The incident did however put a strain on our finances. Please consider making a small donation to help offset having to close during 2020 and our flooding losses. To make a donation – click here.
