Shafer Historical Museum

Winter at the Shafer Museum

Let it snow! The buildings are closed but the grounds & outdoor displays are available, though snowy. "Take a Peek Inside" through the windows and special signage on the buildings. The museum is not cleared of snow in winter.

Please follow outdoor COVID-19 precautions.

The path between Riverside & Castle Avenues is available at your own risk. The museum does not maintain the path in winter and may be icy.
