Today at the Lane County History Museum:

Coming soon: Our website will look different! Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to access all of our currently available resources. They’ll just be organized in a slightly different way. We’re also going to change the way we process donations and membership payments, making it easier both for you and us.

The Museum Building and Exhibits are Open!

Our open hours are 10am – 4pm, Wednesday – Saturday. In accordance with health authority recommendations, we are requiring masks for all individuals. We will update this policy as conditions change.

Museum staff are safely working to continue our commitment to collect, preserve, research, publish and exhibit Our Stories. As things continue to change for our community, we are making Museum resources available to you in new ways that will serve you now, and into the future.

Museum Exterior

Lane County History Museum is funded with money from County tourism. Along with local tourist and hospitality businesses, the museum has been hit by the break in public commerce. We are working hard to stay operational and have committed to continue public operations. More information is available in our newsletters—become a member or join our mailing list to be sure you get your copy! And please donate, ask your friends and family to become members. We are eager to continue serving our community.
