Augusta Museum reopens; grants kept staff on the job


AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – It’s time for things to get moving again at the Augusta History Museum.

After being closed since March, the doors have re-opened.

The museum was able to avoid financial impacts to its workers, thanks to federal relief grants.

“One of my board members got this all arranged for me and that has taken care of some salaries. I didn’t lay anybody off, no furloughs kept everybody paid since March 18th,” said Executive Director Nancy Glaser.

The museum is limiting attendance, and recommending visitors wear mask to combat the coronavirus.
