Bong Center to remain closed through May 31

As we continue to monitor the situation around COVID-19, our public closure has been extended through May 31, 2020. We are preparing supplies and guidelines to successfully reopen the Center under Douglas County guidance.

During this time, we continue to focus on preserving and sharing the stories of our Northland heroes. A new exhibit planned for this summer is still being worked on so that it can be ready for install once it is safe for us to return to the Center. The building is being cleaned and sanitized so it’ll look spic and span when we are able to reopen. And we continue to work on ways to engage our community, our region, and travelers with the Center.

We look forward to welcoming visitors back, seeing our amazing volunteers, and seeing each other!
