A Night at the Museum

A Night at the Museum

There have been a few times in our lives when we’ve said WOW.  Now we’re adding one more, and we invite you to join us.  

For the past three years there have been preparations for a new day at the Hagen History Center. If you have driven by the campus on West Sixth Street, you have seen the progress.   

Old buildings have been restored, and a new building has been constructed. The manicured grounds are at the center of four city blocks of restoration. We’re sure you want to know what’s going on inside. What’s behind those doors?  

There has been an investment of over $11M during the past three years, and the eleven new professionally designed exhibits are sure to inspire you. In addition, the unveiling of the Frank Lloyd Wright San Francisco office will make the Hagen History Center a major tourist destination.

This is history that stimulates. History that excites. History that inspires. 

That’s just a sampling. After you leave, you’ll want to return to see it all (and much more) again. Additionally, new exhibits for 2022 are already in the works! 

Be a part of Where History Inspires. 

Please join us as a sponsor for the Hagen History Center’s signature event, A Night at the Museum, on Saturday, September 18. 

On September 18, from 6 p.m.-10 p.m., A Night at the Museum will feature a campus-wide party with heavy hors d’oeuvres, multiple bars, music, and dancing.  The committee has been planning this event for over a year, and you’ll want to mark your calendar now to attend.  The highlight of our evening will be honoring our friend and Hagen History Center patron, Thomas B. Hagen, for his commitment to the City of Erie.
