Where Past Meets Present

Introduction

Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center

Start your campus journey inside of our museum! Our visitor center staff will help you choose the right experience for you. Rotating exhibit galleries showcase thought-provoking topics that engage all your senses. As a child or an adult visitor, you can interact with the exhibits. They are more than just “looking.” They are “doing.”

Our campus gift shop offers unique keepsakes for you or that special someone. Meeting spaces for businesses or private parties are small, intimate spaces among our historical collections.

The Helen Jeffris Wood Museum Center is the gateway to the RCHS campus. Come inside to experience the stories within. Why not visit this week?
