Community invited for Evenings at the Museum program at 7 p.m. Jan. 17

The Finney County Historical Museum will be closed Jan. 16 in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Day, but exhibits and offices will be open regular hours before and after that date.

Regular hours will resume Jan. 17, and the Evenings at the Museum series will continue then with a 7 p.m. presentation called “Cultures of Native America,” presented by Plains Indian authority Ken Weidner of Copeland.

Regular exhibits hours are 1-5 p.m. seven days weekly, and regular office hours run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free and information is available at 620-272-3664. The museum is located at 403 S. Fourth in Finnup Park.

The Evening at the Museum program, also free, is the first in a series of sessions at 7 p.m. the third Tuesday of the month, January through April. Those who attend are welcome to bring their dinner, if desired, and should use the north door rather than the exhibit entrance. The museum staff will provide beverages and dessert. The evening series is sponsored by Kansas Chapter 62 of the AT&T Pioneers.
