Museum is Closed Until May 1

To do our part in “flattening the curve” during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Gage County Museum will be CLOSED to the public until May 1, 2020.

We are taking this measure in an abundance of caution to maintain the health and well-being of our visitors, staff, volunteers and our community.
Any updates will be posted on our website and social media. Questions
can be directed to our email, gagecountymuseum@yahoo.com.

Thank you for your patience and understating during this time!
