With the health and wellbeing of the community in mind, we have decided to postpone The ‘70s Shindig. While this decision does not come lightly we believe it is the right and responsible action to take in light of the recent coronavirus outbreak. The health and safety of our community and supporters is of utmost importance to the Museum, and we do not want to do anything that would put people at risk. All ticket purchases will be refunded. We thank you for your enthusiasm around the event, and please stay tuned for a future date.
We are monitoring the coronavirus situation closely at the Museum and will continue to follow advice from the San Miguel County Department of Health and Environment, The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and the Colorado Governor’s office. For now, the Museum is currently open with regular hours (Tuesday-Saturday 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.) and will still hold Daffodil Days next week as planned (a great way to support us!).
We have taken extra precautions to keep visitors safe. Common surfaces are being disinfected
multiple times throughout the day, hand sanitizer has been put out for guest
use, and interactive exhibit elements have been removed or shut down. Museum
staff continues to be vigilant about everyday preventative health measures and
encourages guests to follow everyday preventive actions as advised by health
officials including hand washing, covering sneezes and coughs and not visiting the museum when sick or experiencing symptoms of any kind.
The Shindig is an important fundraiser for the Museum and we will be hurting with its postponement. We will also experience a loss in revenue due to decline in visitation because of the outbreak and will be needing extra support now more than ever. If you would like to help the Museum, please donate at https://telluride-historical-museum.shoplightspeed.com/donation/ or reach out to our executive director at [email protected] Thank you for your understanding. We will continue to keep you updated and appreciate your support.
