We would like to say Congratulations to The Silver Reef Museum. Somewhere around Thursday March 12th or Friday the 13th they will celebrating their 10,000th visitor.
The Silver Reef Museum reopened with a new board on July 1, 2013. It is open four days a week (Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday) from 10:00 AM-5:00 PM. The new board has worked diligently to increase and enhance the exhibits.
In addition to their regular open hours, the Museum has developed and runs several other programs as well, such as their school program for Washington County Utah’s 4th grade students. The Silver Reef Museum has developed a series of special events such as lectures on the history, biology, and geology of the area. They also run Ghost Nights in late October. This event allows visitors to walk around the old town at night in groups and to visit the ghosts who tell their stories of having lived in Silver Reef when it was an active mining town from the mid 1870s until it was abandoned around 1890.
The museum is located at 1903 Wells Fargo Road Leeds, UT. (435) 879-2254, Museum@SilverReef.org.
On March 14th at 10:30 AM and 1:00 PM, The Silver Reef Museum will have Martin Tyner of the Southwest Wildlife Foundation giving a presentation on “Birds of Prey.” He will bring several live raptors with him. Suggested donation for the event is $4 per person, and reservations are required.
