EUGENE, Ore. – The Lane County History Museum is set to reopen soon, but even bigger changes could be on the horizon.

The museum, currently located at 740 W. 13th Ave., will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday starting June 16. It's the first time it will be open since it closed due to the pandemic. Masks will be required and for now they are limiting groups to six people.

Looking to the future, museum staff are thinking about moving into the former Oregon Electric Station site at 27 E 5th Ave. Nothing is set in stone yet, and it's not known yet if the museum would operate from both sites or just one. 

The Oregon Electric Station site is itself historic. According to the Oregon Electric Station website, the building served as the final stop in an electric railway that connected the Willamette Valley, opening in the early 1900s.

Admission for the history museum is set at $3 for seniors 60 and over, $5 for adults, $1 for youth ages 15 to 17 and free for children 14 and under.
