The Mandarin Museum is still closed
for expansion and renovation. However, a slow reopening of other buildings is
beginning again.


The historic buildings operated by
Mandarin Museum & Historical Society will be open on scheduled Saturdays.


Masks are required inside the
buildings, but not outside, and we will limit the number of visitors who can be
in each building at a time.  All scheduling is subject to change related
to the pandemic protocol. Check our Facebook page Mandarin Museum for updates

a mile west of the park. This building is on the National Register of Historic
Places and takes you back to the 1930s inside. 


* MMHS and North Florida Folk
Network have resumed the popular “Under the Oaks” community music jam,
underneath the beautiful trees in front of Mandarin Museum on the first Sunday
of each month. Stop by on Sunday, January 2 from 2-4. If you play an acoustic
instrument, feel free to join the song circle. If not, just bring a chair and
relax and listen. The plan is to continue the jam on the 1st Sunday of the
month until summer, when it is too hot. Walter Jones Historical Park – 11964
