The RLSMuseum is undergoing a new project to re-house the permanent collection in a more archival (and space conscious) setting. This will involve some minor construction at the museum and a large scale move of the +11,000 item collection.
Thus we expect the museum to be closed to visitors throughout the month of February. If you have any questions, please contact the staff who will remain available onsite Mondays through Fridays. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding!
Open: Tuesday through Saturday from 12:00pm to 4:00pm
Or By Appointment: RLSM Staff make every effort to ensure everyone can visit the museum, even during off-hours. If you would like to visit but cannot make it during regular hours, please contact us to arrange an appointment.
Closed: Sundays, Mondays, and All Federal Holidays
Museum entry is FREE for everyone. Donations are encouraged and greatly appreciated.
The museum is housed in a wing off of the St. Helena Public Library and has its own entrance on the south side of the entry courtyard.
From Hwy 29 (Main Street in St. Helena) turn East on Adams Street and continue over the railway tracks and past the Bank of America building. Then turn North (left) onto Library Lane. At the end of the lane you will see the Library Complex on the right.
The Library Complex has its own parking lot on the north side of the building where visitors to RLSM can park for an unlimited time. Street parking on Library Lane is also available but limited to 3 hours. Unlimited street parking can be found on Adams Street. All parking in the area is free of charge.
The RLS Museum is wheelchair accessible. Restrooms may be found next door at the St. Helena Public Library.
