‘Museum at Twilight’ Event Offers Evening Access to the Greeley History Museum

 

The Greeley History Museum, 714 8th St., continues evening hours on the second Thursday of the month. Museum at Twilight is a special event from 4-8 p.m. that offers visitors opportunities to explore the galleries and enjoy light refreshments.

The next Museum at Twilight event is scheduled for Aug. 12. The Weld County Genealogical Society will co-host it. Shirley Soenksen, Weld County Genealogical Society president, will briefly overview society activities and answer any questions. Soenksen will present at 6 p.m. and repeat the presentation at 7 p.m.

“We surveyed community members and they said that they would like to visit the museum in the evenings after work hours,” said City of Greeley Museums Manager Sarah Saxe. “Museum at Twilight offers that with some fun extras like guest speakers, snacks, behind-the-scenes tours and more.”

At each event, co-hosting organizations have an opportunity to provide presentations and information.
