Downtown Concert Series

As we get ready to rock and kick off the summer, we want everyone to be mindful of on-going COVID-19 precautions.  While attending the concert, please maintain social distancing- wear masks and bring your own chairs or blankets.  The Museum remains closed to the public at this time and restrooms will not be accessible. In case of inclement weather, the concert is not able to be held inside and will be rescheduled or canceled at the discretion of METC and the DDC.  Please refrain from sitting on the lawn, but there will be plenty of room on the street to sit and spread out. Bringing a picnic dinner is definitely encouraged, so why not support one of the many great restaurants in downtown Madison for takeout? Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding! We are thrilled to be able to host our concert series once again this year!

Share Your Story Project

Everyone has a story to tell, and much of what we do at METC is preserving and sharing the unique stories of the people who lived in New Jersey in the past, helping us connect with each other through history. Living during this unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, we can think of no better way to help preserve history then by asking you to be a part of our “Share Your Stories” project. We hope you will share your stories, photos, and videos with us.
