Smyrna History Museum closes to the public for two months on Monday July 2, 2018 for Exhibits Renovation

The Smyrna History Museum will be undergoing a complete renovation to its exhibits. This renovation will bring a chronological, narrative layout to the museum that will be accessible to all visitors.

The Museum Manager, Jennie Eldredge, will transition into a full-time position to oversee these projects.

In the next couple of months, a company will be hired to create and build all new exhibits for the museum.  Requests for proposal are due on July 20, 2018. The projected renovation start date is Monday, September 3, 2018.

In preparation for the renovation project, the Smyrna History Museum closes to the public on Monday July 2, 2018.

The closing period will allow staff and volunteers time to clean up the museum storage space in preparation for the renovation. 

The new Smyrna Historical Society, which was created to support and aid the museum in its operations, is playing a significant role in the museum’s renovation. If you are interested in helping, SHS is looking for volunteers at all levels, including board members. Please email them at  and let them know you want to help.
