Work Days Are The Lifeblood of Roots

Overview

Roots work days are generally held on the first and third Saturdays of each month from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM. When a work day falls on a three-day weekend, the work day is on that Saturday rather than Sunday. For specific information about a given work day or to confirm the schedule please email Roots. The public is welcome to tour the collection at no charge during work days.
