A CVID 19 Update
Since the beginning of 2020 we have moved our #Meowseum. Our new location is less than 1/2 a mile from the old location. The address is 5063 US Highway 441 in Sylva, NC. We aren’t open yet, however. Our admission to the museum is very reasonable. Adult ticket prices will be either $8 or $10 and children ages 6-12 will be $2 or $5. We are still working out details as to our admission cost. When we moved location we also tripled the size of our museum.
We look forward to the day we can answer “Yes” to that question. We are not open yet for two reasons. We are in the final process of placing our collection into their forever homes. Right now we are unpacking the #ARTiCats & #MuseumCats. Paintings have been hung; but, moving an entire museum is a great understanding to say the least. We are also working on our outdoor Art installation.
On top of that our state is in phase 2 of reopening (this order was renewed this week for another 5 weeks expiring on 9.11.2020 @5pm) and museums, along with other attraction & event venues have not yet been cleared to reopen their doors.
Governors Safer At Home Phase Two Remains In Effect
We are looking forward to opening later this year. At this time we do not know a specific date. We miss our guests dearly and hope to open our doors as soon as possible again to the public. Please keep checking Social Media because we tend to update that first. Our curator is a visionary and has made great progress over the winter & spring months...we are a small museum and there will be lots of new things to see as well as old favorites.
We appreciate the support, understanding & compassion of cat lovers have shown as we complete the move and adjust to new procedures during the reopening phase. Our museum is the legacy our curator, Dr. Sims, leaves all cat lovers and we need support to have it continue far into the future. His collection of antiquities, art & more span the centuries and is perhaps one of the largest privately owned world collection.
