National Baseball Hall of Fame Photo Exhibit To Be Closed for Two Days Due to Possible Bad Weather

Published: 8/26/2020

HOT SPRINGS NATIONAL PARK, Arkansas — Picturing America’s Pastime, an exhibit of 51 photographs from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, now on display at the Hot Springs Convention Center, will be closed to the public Thursday (August 27) and Friday (August 28) because of predictions of bad weather as the result of Hurricane Laura.


The exhibit, sponsored by Relyance Bank, will reopen Saturday (August 29). It is free and open to the public and will run until October 21 at the Convention Center.

“The National Weather Service is forecasting very high winds and the possibility of flooding rainfall as Laura moves through Arkansas,” said Visit Hot Springs CEO Steve Arrison. “We want everyone to be safe, so we will close the exhibit Thursday and Friday. We’ll reopen it Saturday and hope everyone will come and see these amazing photos.”

“Arrison said the Convention Center will be open for visitors to see the exhibit through October 21 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. The exhibit also will be available for viewing during Gallery Walks on Friday evening, September 4, and Friday, October 2.

“We ask that visitors enter the building through the main lobby entrance on Convention Boulevard,” Arrison said. “Face covering will be required, and social distancing will be enforced. Hand sanitizers are available throughout the center.”
