Temporary closure of the National Farm Toy Museum - COVID–19 Response

To help address growing public health concerns regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the National Farm Toy Museum is announcing temporary closure to the public on March 17 through the 31.

There has been no known exposure to individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 in the museum or amongst our guests or staff. This decision was made to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and to contribute to the health and well-being of our community.

While the Iowa Department of Public Health has not reported any cases of COVID-19 in Dubuque County, we are closing as a proactive measure to protect the health of our patrons and employees and to encourage responsible social distancing practices that can help to slow the spread of COVID-19. During this month, we will be closely following announcements from the Center for Disease Control, the Iowa Department for Public Health, and the Dubuque County Public Health department and evaluating any need for further closings and cancellations based on these reports.

As a nonprofit organization, the National Farm Toy Museum relies on the generosity of our many supporters. We are grateful for your ongoing support, as well as your memberships and contributions, that will help to sustain our organization during this challenging time.

We look forward to your visit when we re-open. Museum leadership will continue to monitor the quickly evolving situation and will re-evaluate this decision weekly. Be well, and take care of one another!

Amanda Schwartz

National Farm Toy Museum Manager
