Polk County Museum won’t open after all

Times Report

    Because of COVID-19 concerns, the Polk County Museum in Crookston is closed until further notice.

    “We had intended to open the museum June 16, but we’re keeping it closed in compliance with executive orders from Minnesota Governor Tim Walz and guidelines from the Minnesota Historical Society,” said Polk County Historical Society President Anne Muir of Crookston. “Museums are considered entertainment venues according to the governor’s executive orders.

    “Although the state is slowly reopening, we’re only entering phase three of four phases as stipulated by the governor,” Muir said.

    The Polk County Historical Society Board met June 4 and made the decision to keep the museum closed.

    The Historical Society operates the museum as part of its mission to collect, preserve, promote and communicate the history of Polk County.
