Preserving and sharing history  today for tomorrow.

Please take our survey.Here at SCHS we are always trying to improve our game. To help us serve you better, we are conducting a brief survey to understand your interests.

From now until October 28, we will be conducting a brief member survey, which you can find linked prominently on our SCHS homepage, www.steelehistorymuseum.org. Please take a few moments and share your thoughts with us.  All responses are completely anonymous.

The more feedback we get, the better equipped we will be to improve our exhibits and programming and develop new ones to meet emerging needs.

We value your feedback. And we look forward to sharing with you what we learn from the survey results. Thank you!
