Museum Day, April 4, 2020 – Cancelled; Hanover Area History Museum’s Opening to the Public Postponed.

We regret to announce that Smithsonian Magazine has cancelled the 2020 Museum Day due to concerns about the coronavirus. At this time, they have not indicated if the event will be rescheduled. If they do, we will post something immediately. HAHS planned to open Hanover’s newest museum on Museum Day, but that had to be postponed. We hope to open the Hanover Area History Museum in June. Check back regularly for updates.

Regrettably, HAHS is cancelling the popular Easter Egg Hunt this year, out of concern for the health and well-being of the children and families who participate.


Join HAHS in our third year participating in Give Local York, a one-day giving opportunity and a chance to “Give Where You Live.” In 2019, Give Local York raised $3.2 million for more than 300 nonprofit organizations in our area. HAHS raised more than $13,000 last year and this year our goal is $15,000. Mark your calendar for May 1, 2020, when we can make that day the biggest day of giving in York County history!
