The Morton Museum and the Santa Fe Depot Museum will be closed until further notice. We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but to comply with current issues we believe this step is best for all.

Also, our Annual Auction & Dinner scheduled for May 1 has been canceled, but the event is tentatively rescheduled for September 19.  More details will follow as we formulate a plan. Check our Facebook page for updates on the museum opening and schedule of events.  


Thanks for your understanding and your support.

This has been a different year for everyone and another one of those differences is our annual meeting.  Due to the pandemic and the roof repair going on at the museum we felt it best not to have an in person meeting this year.  Elaine McHorse, the president of the board, has created this short video to give you a state of the museum address.  If you have any questions please feel free to call or email the museum at anytime.
