I talked about the Gulfport, Florida History/ Historical Society Museum – http://www.gulfporthistoricalsociety.org/ several times, starting with the Labor Day Fire 2018 – Gulfport (Florida) Historical Museum/Society Labor Day 2018 Fire. I received an e-mail yesterday announcing the re-opening on June 1, 2019. If you are a VIP member, there is a special event on May 31, 2019, 7:00 – 8:30 P. M. U. S. Eastern Time. Both events are also on the main page and calendar of the Society.
At long last, the museum reopens! Join us?
Join us for a very special grand re-opening of the Gulfport History Museum!
After months of renovation following last summer’s Labor Day fire, our museum is in beautiful shape and we’re excited to officially open to the public on June 1, 2019.
We’ll be open to everyone this Saturday, June 1, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. for a meet and greet with volunteers, board members and our first-ever operations manager. You can learn more about GHS’s plans for the coming year and our ongoing efforts to digitize and preserve Gulfport’s town records, all while enjoying our beautifully restored museum space. Our exhibit The Gabber: 50 Years of Hyper-Local News will be back on display for your enjoyment.
We’ll have a light buffet brunch, courtesy of Stella’s, with some muffins from A Friend Who Bakes. We always welcome dogs and well-behaved children.
The Gulfport Historical Society operates the Gulfport History Museum, located at 5301 28th Ave. S., in Gulfport.
