Beginning May 1, the Chesterfield County Museum, the historic 1892 Jail, and Magnolia Grange Museum House will operate on an expanded weekly schedule of Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Saturdays, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. The museum and jail are located on Mimms Loop in the Courthouse Green at the Chesterfield Government Center.

The historic facilities were closed in March of last year and recently reopened with limited hours. These expanded hours return the sites to a pre-COVID-19 operating schedule.
