“Our regular season ended on Sunday, October 25th with a closing reception for our seasonal exhibit Mending Fences: New Works by Carol MacDonald. However with COVID-19 preventing us from opening in May, we decided to keep Rokeby Museum open on weekends,” noted Director Dr. Lindsay Varner.
Admission to Rokeby is Free for members. For non-members it is $10 for adults; $9 for seniors; $8 for students and children 5+; and free for children 4 and under. Please note: face mask usage and physical distancing is currently required at Rokeby Museum.
