COVID 19 Guidelines

Upon reopening the Moore Methodist Museum will follow

these important safety guidelines during your visit:

  • The Museum will be open at reduced capacity, based on state guidelines. We encourage visitors to limit the length of their stay during busy periods.
  • Face coverings are required for all visitors, staff and volunteers. Masks are available for purchase at minimal cost at the Museum entrance.
  • Museum hours are Thursday - Saturday 11:00 - 3:00. To request an appointment outside these posted hours, please call the Museum Curator at 912-638-4050.
  • Please practice social distancing while visiting the Museum and maintain a minimum distance of six feet from those outside your party. Children under the age of 16 will not be allowed entrance without an accompanying adult.

  • Hand sanitizer stations are positioned at the entrance and throughout the Museum.
  • In accordance with guidelines from the state of Georgia and the CDC, seniors and people with serious medical conditions should exercise caution in choosing to visit, even after "shelter in place" ends. While we endeavor to provide a germ-free environment, risk is still a factor to consider, especially for vulnerable guests.
  • If you are not feeling well, please do not visit the Museum at this time. Staff who exhibit any signs of illness will be required to stay home and seek medical attention.

Local Church

Historian Workshop


Richard Stowe, Historian for the Indiana Conference of the United Methodist Church, has created an online workshop for local church historians that is now being offered by the General Commission on Archives and History. The Local Church Historian Program offers a wide range of skills useful to both the novice and the expert historian to make their Ministry of Memory even more complete. Participating churches will learn to dig deeper into their story for the purpose of proclaiming it to the world and further making disciples for Jesus Christ. This free workshop will begin in September 2020 and registration can be found at the link to the left of this paragraph. The only things necessary to participate is a working email address and minimal computer skills. All churches in the South Georgia Conference which complete the Local Church Historian Workshop will be recognized by the Moore Methodist Museum and South Georgia Conference Archives at the 2021 Annual Conference Meeting.
