LaPorte County Museum To Re-Open

     The La Porte County Historical Society announces its plans for the re-opening of their Museum on Tuesday, July 7, 2020, at 2405 Indiana Avenue in La Porte.
     In order to protect the public, museum staff, and volunteers from COVID-19, certain restrictions will be in place. Masks are required of all visitors upon entering the building, and everyone will be required to wear masks for the entire duration of their visit at the Museum. Gloves and hand sanitizer will be available to all visitors.
     If there are special circumstances that make the wearing of a mask difficult, or if these restrictions should interfere with the public’s enjoyment of their visit, the Historical Society recommends postponing the visit until the time when the restrictions can be eased.
     All visitors will be required to complete screening questions for each member in their party. Visitors will be required to call ahead if there are more than five persons in their party.
     To use the Fern Eddy Schultz Research Library or to donate items for the Museum, the public is asked to please call 219-324-6767 to schedule an appointment.
     During this time, the La Porte County Historical Society Museum will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. until further notice. Regular admission fees apply. For further information, please contact the Museum at
     The La Porte County Historical Society appreciates the public’s cooperation in this matter, and is looking forward to serving the public again. Visit their website at
