Gift shop
The museum gift shopOur small gift shop is tucked into a corner on the first floor. It offers button-inspired items such as jewelry and wreaths, along with mugs, postcards and books. Be sure to peek in during your visit.


Because this is a very old house, it was not designed to be accessible for people with disabilities. While we continue to make every effort possible to increase accessibility to the Keep Homestead Museum, the cellar and second floor remain out of reach for anyone who cannot climb stairs. A major portion of the main focus of the museum, the button collection, is on the first floor, as is the restroom. We maintain an extensive photo album and offer a virtual tour via an onsite computer for the cellar and second floor. We remain open to creative solutions for accessibility as funding sources allow.
