YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Arms Family Museum and Tyler History Center reopened Tuesday morning.

The Mahoning Valley Historical Society is very excited to welcome back visitors.

However, there are still some guidelines you need to know before going. Masks and social distancing will still be enforced. Anyone showing symptoms of COVID-19 is asked to stay home.

They are also limiting the number of people inside at one time.

There is an admission fee and both places will be open Tuesday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

Visitors can expect to see a new exhibit at the Tyler History Center when they come.

Executive Director Bill Lawson says that some of the items featured are around 180 years old.

“This is a new exhibit at the Youngstown Foundation Community History Gallery here at the Tyler History Center. It’s called Woven Works of Art, and it’s 19th century coverlets, and we had a number of weavers here in the Mahoning Valley who did this for a living,” Lawson said.

The cost to enter the center is seven dollars for adults, six dollars for seniors and college students and five dollars for children ages three to 18.
