Museum open, looking forward to events
We are all aware that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected almost every phase of our lives, including limiting activities we normally enjoy. For nonprofit organizations, like the Kossuth County Agriculture and Motorsports Museum, normal activities that generate revenue needed to meet ongoing expenses have been, to a significant degree, curtailed. However, like many organizations, adjustments have been made, certain activities have resumed and plans for future events scheduled.
Most years, the museum is open for general admission on Saturdays and Sundays from April 1 through Dec. 31, during the hours of 1 through 4 p.m., or by appointment. This year however, opening was delayed until May 23, with social distancing encouraged throughout. Displays of racing cars, racing paraphernalia, vintage tractors, farm equipment and tools, and of course the Benschoter model train display, are all included with admission.
