Greetings from Slater Memorial Museum,



I am excited to reach out and share some important information with you -- and give you a chance for a special experience at the museum.



It gives me great pleasure to share with you that Slater Memorial Museum will return to its regular hours of operation beginning Tuesday, August 3. You will no longer need to make advanced reservations to visit. Masks are still required inside our facility, but this should make it much easier for you to enjoy our collections. Regular hours are Tuesday-Friday, 9 am to 4 pm; Saturday and Sunday 1 to 4 pm. The museum is closed Mondays.



While some of you have come during our time of reduced hours, there are many of you who have not, and we look forward to welcoming you back.



In fact, we have a special opportunity for all members and friends of the museum. Please join us Friday, July 30, from 5:30 to 7 pm for a special opportunity to visit. This is not for the public, only our members and friends. During this time, you'll have the chance to explore what we know is one of your favorite places. You'll also hear a gallery talk about our newest exhibit, the Vanderpoel Gallery of Asian Art.



Additionally, during this time, you'll have the chance to meet our new assistant director, Jen Kowal. And, we'll be sharing some special news about a significant upcoming project that will preserve and protect the history and objects of the museum for decades to come. It will have an impact on our operations for a short period of time, too. I encourage you to come the night of July 30, and learn more. This is a true once-in-a-lifetime project. Light refreshments will be served.



To register for the event on July 30, click here.



Otherwise, thank you for your continued support of Slater Memorial Museum, especially in these challenging times. Be on the lookout for our summer newsletter, too.



Sincerely,

Dayne Rugh

Interim Director
