Severe Weather & Closings

The History Center is committed to excellent service to our community each and every day. 

But, your safety is the most important.


The History Center and related community programming will be postponed, cancelled or closed when severe weather strikes. For the latest updates please visit our Facebook page at

If the area weather service has issued a warning before a program begins, or if the Cedar Rapids area school districts have dismissed or had a delay for any reason (rain, storm or snow) we will follow their lead.

Any program or exhibit hosted through a community building, like The Cedar Rapids Public Library, is subject to the closing decisions made by that building.

Light rain or snow, won’t keep many of our programs from happening however! If the community agrees that travel isn’t of concern, we agree!

Please use your best judgement, and we’ll see you soon!

Any appropriate weather related closing will be posted on KCRG’s media outlets. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
