Hjemkomst Center Open during Thanksgiving Weekend

HCS, the museum at the Hjemkomst Center, will remain open for regular hours throughout the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. We will be closed Thanksgiving Day but will re-open Friday, Nov 28 and resume normal hours: 9-5pm Mon-Sat and Noon-5pm on Sunday.

We have many family-friendly exhibits including House & Home, our newest interactive exhibit that embarks on a tour of houses both familiar and surprising, through past and present, to explore the varied history, and many cultural meanings of the American home.

Experience also the Doing Our Part: Clay County in WWII exhibit.  From the home front to the front lines of combat, Americans did their part to help win World War II, and Clay County was no exception. Doing Our Part: Clay County in WWII tells the stories of the men, women, and children of Clay County who were affected by the war and how it changed the fabric of everyday life. Families sending loved ones off to war, scrap drives and rationed food became part of daily life from 1942 to 1945.

FMVA Constraint show is also open. This year’s show features the theme Labels, which challenged many of the artists to think about the labels in our society and what that means to them. This mixed-media exhibit will feature two-  and three-dimensional works with a wide variety of interpretations.

The museum is open Monday-Saturday 9am-5pm and Sunday noon-5pm. Admission is Adults $8, Seniors $7, College Students $7, Youth (5 – 17) $6, Children (4 & under) Free and HCSCC Members Free
