Covid-19 Museum Procedures

Shelby County Museum & Archives

The Shelby County Museum & Archives has returned to its regular operating hours of Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the second Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Per the governor’s regulations, we will operate at half capacity. We will require that individuals maintain social distancing regulations. Patrons that want to use the archive for research purposes are required to wash their hands prior to touching computers, books, or other property. If you plan on doing research with the assistance of a museum staff member, we require that you bring a mask to wear. We will do our part by wearing masks and wiping down surfaces frequently to prevent the spread of germs. Tour groups are advised to call us at 205-669-3912 for additional instructions prior to visiting the museum.  Follow the museum and archives on Facebook for more news and updates.
