The Historical Museum at St. Gertrude opens the summer season with improvements to the collection and museum facility. The past year has seen updates to the climate control system, archival preservation of the artifacts, and continued work with the computer database system used to manage the collection. Debra Graham of Grangeville also recently joined the staff to help manage the collection and interpret it for guests.
To support ongoing improvements, the museum entrance fee is now $6 for adults and $3 for students and free for Children 6 and under. As always, members of the museum enjoy free, unlimited membership to the museum. Membership options start at $20 a year and are detailed at the Museum’s website, www.HistoricalMuseumatStGertrude.org.
