Stone Harbor Museum Gets Updated

Posted May 23rd 2022

The Stone Harbor Museum is completing work on winter renovations that includes technological enhancements geared to improve the visitor experience and exhibit displays. And with the final installments being completed in early May, the museum has scheduled a Memorial Day weekend grand reopening for Saturday, May 28 at 10am, open to the public.

“The improvements have really enhanced the displays and how we are able to exhibit our wonderful artifacts and Stone Harbor memories that we are lucky to have,” said board secretary and co-exhibit coordinator Teri Fischer.

As the museum reopens, displays have been updated with new material and artifacts, and plans are underway for a busy and exciting summer of programming. The popular children’s scavenger hunt returns, as well as a new version that features decoding for older children and adults. Exhibits and activities now have the use of QR codes, so hunts can be enjoyed using mobile devices as well.

Additional summer programming includes the return of the Open Mic Nights, where visitors are invited to share their stories of times in Stone Harbor. A new program, Children’s Time on Fridays at 9am, will include stories, crafting, a snack, and learning more about the fun and fascinating exhibits through the museum. And save the date for the museum’s annual Tour Through Time Gala set for Aug. 24 at The Reeds at Shelter Haven, this year honoring Josee and Bob Rich with the 2022 Risley Award.

Following the reopening event, the museum will be open Monday through Saturday from 10am-1pm, fully staffed by trained volunteers and docents ready to greet visitors for a tour and fun historical facts. For information on programs and exhibits, go to
