(Lincoln City, Oregon) – Phase 2 on the central Oregon coast brings more joyous tidings: the North Lincoln County Historical Museum in Lincoln City opens back up on October 7.

Museum director Jeff Syrop said they will be closely following COVID-19 guidelines, which means a limited capacity, required social distancing and face coverings, and the children’s room will remain closed. Regular hours will be resumed, however: Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“During the COVID-19 shutdown, museum staff and volunteers have been busy working behind the scenes,” Syrop said. “We have made many improvements to existing exhibits, sent out newsletters, and posted virtual tours and exhibits.”

The central Oregon coast museum has created new exhibits as well.

One is the Pioneer Portraits: numerous photos bring to life local pioneers through their stories of trials and tribulations that come with homesteading on the Oregon coast. Defunct Devices showcases all the technologies that were, in one way or another, replaced by the smartphone. These include, but are not limited to, an adding machine, typewriter, tape recorder, phonograph, and an amazing camera collection.

The museum’s mini theatre is now a complete exhibit with information on North Lincoln theatres and prints from actual local theatre posters.

Meanwhile, Syrop said the museum is thankful for all the help it received throughout quarantine.

“We’ve been able to stay active thanks to the North Lincoln community, county support, memberships, donations, and a COVID-19 relief grant from Oregon Humanities,” he said. “If you would like to help support the museum during these difficult times, please consider becoming a member, donating, or supporting us through Amazon Smile. Be sure to check out our website for all the latest updates, virtual tours and exhibits, especially if you are unable to visit us during these difficult times. Thanks for the support and see you at the museum.”

The museum is at 4907 SW Hwy 101, Lincoln City, Oregon. 541-996-6614.
