Taking a Winter Break …
The Highlands Museum & Discovery Center will be taking a winter break due to rising Covid-19 cases in our area. The last opening date to the public will be Nov. 28, 2020. It is our hope that taking this break will allow us to construct new and exciting exhibits and continue building the new Clark Family Discovery Center, currently under construction on the 2nd floor.
It is our plan to be able to open in the spring with an exciting exhibit in April celebrating Anita Madden: Ashland native, Lexington socialite, and Businesswoman.
During this break, the museum office and gift shop will remain open during normal business hours (Tues-Fri, 10 a.m to 4 p.m.). Be sure to stop in for unique Kentucky made gifts, Ester Price Chocolates, Ruth Hunt candies, Mom Blakeman cream candy and other curiosities. For questions during this time please call the main office 606.329.8888.
Birthday parties in the children’s Discovery Center will be suspended until further notice. For information on future rentals of the Highlands Center, our event space, please call the museum for more information.
In an attempt to keep the public connected as much as possible, we are providing several opportunities to view event favorites. The Christmas Tour of Homes will be brought to you virtually on our website and our Facebook page beginning Dec. 5 as well as Walking with the Past which will be available beginning in January.
Please continue to visit our social media and like and share our content. The museum intends to continue the photo of the day series on social media until at least the end of the year. Visit us at the following social media locations:
