The New Milford Historical Society and Museum announce that the museum will be closed to the public for tours during the months of January and February 2018.

Along with the curator and registrar, a team of volunteers will work on a collection storage rehabilitation project of the main gallery attic.

The project will include a major cleaning and re-organization of the museum’s primary collection storage area.

Properly cleaning, cataloging and re-housing the collection will occur to create better access and to promote preservation of the collection according to professional curatorial standards is the goal.

Researchers can still make an appointment for access to our archives by calling the museum during regular business hours.

Special events and programs will continue to be held in the Boardman Store during the months of January and February.

The museum will re-open to the public with their normal hours beginning March 3..
