HEALTH NOTE: Due to the rising case numbers of COVID-19 in York County, the Museum continues to monitor safety. At this time, we ask that all visitors wear masks when indoors; and outdoors if in crowded areas while unvaccinated (or if you’re just more comfortable wearing one). We are working to ensure that most of the Fair takes place outside. Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
