The CHOM board of directors would like to thank Sarah Flashing for her role as executive director over the past couple of years. As CHOM transitions back to a completely volunteer run organization, the
days and hours that the museum is open will be Thursday through Saturday from 10:00-2:00 each day. We look forward to adding more days and hours in the near future.

Our hours are 10 am – 2 pm Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. No masks are required after February 28! We are pleased to be able to announce that.




Through the generosity of The Community Foundation of Northern Illinois, the Stephenson County Youth Diversion Grant, and the ongoing support of our members and donors, CHOM has secured the necessary equipment and supplies, and has developed a strategy to help families stay safe while still enjoying many of the exhibits that were in place prior to the COVID-19 closure. Thank you for your continued interest and support of the mission of CHOM.
