Temporarily closed

The James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home & Visitor Center will be closed to the public from March 14-31 as a precautionary measure as COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the United States. All private events at the venue are also being postponed, and any associated fees will be refunded. No staff or visitors to the museum have reported infection.

We will continue to follow developments about COVID-19 and communicate any updates on rileymuseumhome.org and via social media at facebook.com/RileyMuseumHome.

While our public-facing activities are being put on hold, our Museum Home staff will continue to be available to you. Please contact Chris Mize at cmize@RileyKids.org.

We appreciate the community’s understanding as we seek to help keep our community safe.
