TCHS changes exhibits in two of our galleries 2-3 times a year. The remaining galleries are host to several “permanent items” that can be enjoyed whenever you stop by the museum. Many of these items have a rich history and have been local favorites for some time.
View our upcoming exhibits to see what is coming in 2020!
