We are now located in the Old Town Hall building on Historic Berkley Common.

One of our most pressing goals has been to find a new home for our collection. The Old Town Hall on the Historic Berkley Common is the perfect showcase and an important historical building which will be our home and our biggest project to date.

We will have regular visiting hours and many volunteer opportunities for the members of our community to come together to preserve this icon.
