Visiting Our Museum
We are so happy you are interested in visiting our museum. Since we are a team of volunteers we are open to the public for limited hours on Saturdays from 1:00 to 4:00 PM. However, we are open by appointment. If you are visiting in town and would like to see the house, enjoy an exhibit or use the research library please email us or call us to make an appointment.
Jillson House Museum hosts workshops, presentations, discussions, social events and art exhibits. Almost all of our programs are free. For special events and programs where we serve food and beverages, or require materials for the project, additional costs may apply. We try our hardest to make our admission affordable, as we want everyone to be able to experience the wonders behind our Museum.
