  • 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.
