Earthquake Update

Tooele City Parks Department thoroughly checked the museum this morning after the earthquake. There was only some minor cosmetic damage in the Foreman’s House. There was no damage to the collection or exhibits.

Thanks again to all the city employees and volunteers who have helped secure the collection over the last few years!

Museum Closed for Private Tours through May 29th

As a a precaution against the spread of COVID-19, we will not be conducting any private tours through March 29, 2020. We hope to open on schedule in May, but we will be postponing the Storytelling Jubilee until July.

Until then, we will be working with the parks department and library staff to bring you Boredom Busters and other quarantine friendly activities.

A Very Merry Time!

A very merry time was had at the Polar Express Extravaganza. The museum teamed up with the library to bring this successful library event to the old train depot. We were able to make the  Metal Spiral Wreath event even more fun and add more activities. We created a light display on Engine 11, had activities and Christmas displays in the main building, created 2 photo spots, and served hot chocolate to all.
