After a six-month closure the Hyrum Museum has re-opened with a new director, new exhibits and new programs planned for the community.

On <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/328/2013_01_31_328_7936_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>KVNU’s Crosstalk show Thursday</a>, new director Jami Van Huss said a quarterly community exhibit is open to anyone to display their interesting family histories or collections.

Van Huss said a <a href=”https://sites.google.com/a/hyrumcity.com/hyrum-museum/programs” target=”_blank”>community workshop</a> will be held the second Saturday of each month, beginning February 9 at 10 a.m.

“This first one is entitled Preserving Your Past,” Van Huss explained. “We’ve invited the Utah State (University) Special Collections Archives and Photo Curator Daniel Davis to come out and talk about how to preserve and repair our valuable and sentimental photographs and documents.

“Hopefully he’s also going to bring a few neat things out of special collections for us to look at.”

She said the museum’s first “Back in Time” monthly children’s activity will be held February 12 at 2 p.m. The museum, located in the Hyrum Library building, is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12 noon to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. For more information call 245-0208.
