COVID-19 UPDATE: Museum closed and in-person events cancelled until further notice

The Historical Society of Princeton, as an organization whose mission it is to bring members of the community together for history education experiences, is actively monitoring and addressing concerns related to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). 

Our highest priority is the safety of our visitors, staff, volunteers, and collaborators. In order to protect them and to support the nationwide effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, the museum at Updike Farmstead is temporarily closed to the public. In addition, all scheduled in-person public programs and events have been cancelled or postponed. 

A list of virtual programs can be found on our online calendarWe encourage you visit  History@Home, a compilation of digital initiatives and interactions for history lovers of all ages, and stay connected with us online through our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages. 

Although the museum is closed, our staff is still hard at work fulfilling our mission, and can be reached by phone or email, as needed. 

We will continue to monitor the situation and follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and local and state health organizations. Please continue to check and explore the CDC website for recommendations about what you can do to stay healthy and protect others.
