Museum Closed for Construction Project

November 24th – December 26th

Did you know that in most museums, the majority of their artifact collection is in storage? The Elkhorn Valley Museum stores thousands of artifacts that are rotated into the permanent exhibits and used for temporary exhibits. Since the current storage at the Elkhorn Valley Museum is inadequate, the Elkhorn Valley Museum applied for and received a challenge grant from the Peter Kiewit Foundation to support completely re-doing the artifact storage. Click here to find out more about the Peter Kiewit Foundation Challenge Grant To complete construction of the new artifact storage shelving, EVM will be closed November 24th – December 26th, 2016.
