Hamburg Museum Opens Doors for the First Time in 2020

 Around the time that the Hamburg Township Historical Museum was ready to open its doors for the 2020 season, COVID-19 hit Michigan and cultural institutions were closed. Recent executive orders have eased those rules, enabling the Hamburg museum to welcome visitors again under “stay safe” practices like wearing a mask (for those ages 5+), using hand sanitizer after entering the building, and social distancing.

A successful “soft opening” was held on August 8, ensuring that those practices would work. “So, we now feel comfortable establishing our 2020 hours as 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays,” noted Administrator Patricia Majher.

New to the museum for 2020 is a rotating exhibit gallery. Its first exhibit – to launch this fall – will focus on historic businesses that once called Hamburg Township home. “For example, many people have heard of the Hamburg Dairy,” said Majher. “But few realize we had a cheese company that operated 40 years before that.” Next to the new gallery is a gift shop of merchandise that celebrates township history as well as the love of tea.

The museum’s popular tea room isn’t yet able to host events, due to COVID-related room capacity restrictions. “If that situation changes,” said Majher, “we’ll let everybody know.”
