Due to local and state restrictions regarding indoor museums and with the utmost regard for the health and safety of our volunteers and visitors, the Sharpsteen Museum continues to be temporarily closed.
We look forward to the day we can open again and safely present our permanent and temporary exhibits to our guests. We will have a new exhibit in place at that time- “A Retrospective of Earl Thollander- Recording Life Through Art”. Check back here for updates.
Don’t forget, our “Online Store” is Open. Visit our museum store page where you can purchase books, prints, new or renewed memberships, make a donation or memorial gift, etc.
Please stay safe.

WHAT OUR VISITORS ARE SAYING...
Google Reviews, June 2017
What a cool place for kids and adults! We loved that it has ties to the original Disney gang. Mr. Sharpsteen sure was a talented and fascinating man. My personal museum favorite was the walk through attached cottage from the 1800's. It is rare to get that close to great quality antiques. My children loved the exhibit where you can watch the train go around the town. We're very glad we stopped in and also took time to shop in their reasonably priced gift shop and chat with the friendly and informative staff. Highly recommended!
