Dubois County Museum postponing March Programs
he Dubois County Museum is following the guidelines posted by The Indiana Historical Society. Just as the IHS, so too, the Dubois County Museum is committed to doing our part as we address the ramifications of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Our top priority is the health and safety of our visitors, guests, volunteers and staff members.
The Dubois County Museum will be postponing our programs during the month of March, such as Night at the Museum on March 25 with Blake Buechlein and Jasper Reptile Center and the Farm Bureau Breakfast on March 26. Also, the Dubois County Historical Society is postponing its March 26 meeting at the museum with Bill Bartelt about “Abe’s Youth: Shaping the Future President.” We will continue to evaluate the situation on an ongoing basis. Every attempt will be made to reschedule events for a later date.
At this time, General admission to the Dubois County Museum will remain open to allow visitors the opportunity to tour the DCM exhibits. The free evening on March 25 will still be held from 5:30-8:00 p.m. for people to visit the exhibits at the museum, but no program will be held.
We have taken additional precautions by increasing the use of disinfectants on surfaces throughout the building and provided hand sanitizing stations for public areas.
Our leadership team continues to monitor updates from Public Health Agencies.
