The Manchester Historic Association has reopened to the public!
Since July 1, we have been happy to be able to welcome people back to both the Millyard Museum and Research Center.
Please read below to learn the steps we are taking, in accordance with the Governor's Economic Reopening Taskforce and CDC guidelines, to ensure the safety of our guests, volunteers, and staff.
· All guests are asked to use ONLY the Commercial Street entrance to the building and remain only on the first floor during your visit. At times, the entrance may be locked, even during our open hours. If you are trying to visit the museum during our normal operating hours and the exterior door is locked, please ring the doorbell or call the Museum’s main line (603-622-7531) and someone will let you in.
· Masks are required for visitors, volunteers, and staff (while in common areas). Masks are available at the front desk for those who need them.
· People are required to maintain social distancing of 6 feet inside the museum. A one-way flow through the museum will be followed to facilitate social distancing.
· The restrooms immediately outside the museum entrance have been designated for Millyard Museum guests only. Surfaces will be cleaned regularly throughout the day, and professionally cleaned daily.
· Hand sanitizer is readily available at the admissions desk and in the building lobby.
· Common use surfaces, including door handles, push buttons, and phones, will be cleaned and disinfected every two hours.
