The Museum is closed every year on July 4 to support and promote the area’s community events, and allow our own, dedicated staff a rare summer holiday to spend with family and friends celebrating our national holiday.

Please take advantage of the many opportunities to celebrate in Ely and the surrounding communities (Tower parade at 11am, Ely at 1pm).

In addition to the events listed on the poster, there is live music from 6-9 in Semers Park by Van & the Free Candies and live music at Mealey’s Tiki Deck from 7-9 by True Blue North. End your day with fire works in Ely at 10pm.
