Museums open under uncertainty

Museums in Door and Kewaunee Counties are taking it a little bit slower when it comes to reopening to the public. Some museums like the Kewaunee County Jail Museum in Kewaunee and the Door County Historical Museum in Sturgeon Bay have not reopened yet due to COVID-19 concerns. The Door County Maritime Museum opened its Sturgeon Bay museum and the Cana Island Lighthouse to visitors for the first time over the weekend with visitor limits and extra sanitation procedures. Deputy Director Sam Perlman is not sure what kind of response museums will receive post-Safer at Home Order, but believes they are taking the necessary precautions to welcome them back safely.

This past weekend also marked the opening of its new interpretative center on Cana Island, which will give visitors a deeper look at the history of the lighthouse that sits on its land.
