Port Huron, MI — The Carnegie Center, the Fort Gratiot Light Station, the HURON Lightship, and the Thomas Edison Depot Museum each feature unique aspects of the Port Huron area’s history, and make up the four locations of the Port Huron Museums. After months of being closed, all four sites re-opened to the public for tours on Wednesday, June 17th.
Museum staff have made some adjustments to adhere to CDC regulations, so visitors will see some changes that help facilitate social distancing in exhibit areas and the museum store. The museum staff and volunteers are also wearing masks, and visitors are required to wear them as well.
Only 10 people are allowed to be in each museum building at a time, and tours may be adjusted to keep visitors spaced out. Hands on exhibits have been temporarily removed or made inaccessible, and the museums sites will be cleaned and sanitized often to keep visitors safe.
New operating hours are Wednesdays – Sundays from 12 PM – 4 PM. and visitors can call the Museums at 810-982-0891 to schedule a private tour.
