Los Altos History Museum set to reopen indoor gallery

As Santa Clara County enters the state’s COVID-19 ‘Orange Tier,’ more indoor activities are set to resume after months closed.

The Los Altos History Museum, which has been holding its Women’s Suffrage exhibit outdoors, is reopening its main gallery. Activities at the museum have been virtual as well since March.

Kicking off the reopening is an expanded version of that exhibition, following phased reopening health guidelines. Starting October 15, museum hours are Friday to Sunday from 12 noon to 4 p.m. daily. Seniors and COVID-vulnerable visitors have special reserved hours on Thursdays from 12 noon to 4 p.m.

“The outdoor exhibit was just a sneak peek– the indoor exhibition offers even more stories about the local, state, and national movements for women’s suffrage,” said Curator Dr. Amy Ellison.

To adhere to county health guidance, the museum will reduce the number of visitors at a time. Masks are required for those over age two.

Physical distancing is also required. The museum will have masks for sale for those who arrive without them.

“We are grateful to be able to offer a safe opportunity for enrichment while we all work to keep our community healthy,” Ellison added.
