The Reno County Museum invites the public to “behind the scenes” tours of the artifact storage area beginning on Tuesday, September 17 and continuing through Friday, September 20, 2013. The museum is at Avenue A and Walnut Street in Hutchinson. Reno County Museum staff will offer two 10-15 minute tours each day, the first at 11:00 a.m. and again at 2:00 p.m. Reservations are required; visitors will need to call or email ahead to schedule a time for this free tour.
This is a rare opportunity to see into the museum’s artifact storage area that houses over 36,000 items. Visitors will hear fascinating information about both the storage areas and the items themselves. Due to the limited space in the storage area, tours are limited to a maximum of ten people per tour. Visitors can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 620-662-1184 to reserve a tour time.
The upper level storage area is not fully accessible by elevator, so visitors will need to be able to walk up and down four steps.
These behind-the-scenes tours, are being offered in conjunction with the new exhibit, “RCM on the Road… Comes Home” that is now open..
