COVID-19 UPDATE: Museum closed and events cancelled through April 5

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, effective Saturday, March 14, through Sunday, April 5. In addition, all scheduled public programs and events during this time have been cancelled or postponed.

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.

In the meantime, we encourage you to stay connected with us online and explore our digital resources, including our Facebook page, digital tours, and our online database.
