Kewaunee County Jail Museum closed for 2020

The Historic Jail Museum, located in Kewaunee, will not reopen this year. The Kewaunee County Jail Museum posted on social media Monday that due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the difficult decision was made not to open the Kewaunee County Jail Museum for the 2020 season. Citing safety concerns for staff and visitors, the organization decided not to open. According to the Kewaunee County website, the 144-year-old building houses donated collections of the Kewaunee County Historical Society while featuring a jail section with one cell in its original configuration. The museum would have been celebrating its 50th anniversary.  Plans are to open next year for the 51st year.
