Our Museum Transformation has begun!

Interested in being a part of this exciting transformation?

NEXT Moving Day: Saturday, February 20th, 10am-2pm
Lunch will be provided!

We’ve already begun moving our collection for temporary storage but we need more hands to help!
Get behind the scenes, and hands-on with some of our diverse artifact collection.

Curator, Bonnie Byrd, will give a brief orientation starting at 10 a.m. so no experience necessary.
Wear your work clothes for an active moving-day!

Please Call us during office hours (M-F 9:00-4:30)
at 262-521-2859 if interested OR email:info@wchsm.org
