Springfield Museum Temporarily Closed Through September for Management Transition

The Springfield Museum will start a new chapter this fall, under the direction of the Springfield Public Library and new Museum Curator.

The Springfield Museum will be temporarily closed starting Friday, September 1 and will reopen Tuesday, October 3. The Museum will open for the Second Friday Artwalk in September and the current exhibit will continue into October so that Museum-goers still have the opportunity to enjoy the exhibit.

The temporary closure will allow time to transition operations and for the new Museum Curator to start in late September.
