Midway Village Museum Operations Update
Related To The COVID-19 Virus
Midway Village Museum continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 virus and its impacts on the museum industry. As of Friday, November 20, new State of Illinois mandates require museums in Illinois to close until the COVID-19 safety concerns are re-evaluated on December 4. Please check back regularly about our hours of operations as COVID-19 conditions have been changing throughout the year.
All special events, programs, activities, field trips, tours and other activities are now closed to the public. See below for cancelled or postponed activities/events. Any changes will be posted publicly.
At Midway Village Museum, our goal is to keep staff, volunteers and the public safe.
Lamplight Evening Tours

The Main Museum Center is closed Friday, November 20 through Friday, December 4, when a re-evaluation by the State of Illinois will take place in regard to COIVD-19 safety concerns.
The staff at the museum is following Center for Disease Control guidelines to avoid further spread of the virus:
. Stay home if you are sick
. Cover your coughs and sneezes
. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
. Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects
. Maintain "social distance" by at least 6 feet between you and another person
. Do not plan or attend large gatherings/parties or group meetings
The safety of our community, and all those who visit and are part of the museum team remains our highest priority. The museum will provide updates on its operations to staff, visitors, re-enactors, educators, members, volunteers and others affiliated with museum operations.
