About the Museum
The Wabash County Museum is proud to be the keeper of history, an ever-evolving place to engage, explore, and to learn from the past, present and future of our county and beyond. We use state-of-the-art exhibits and engaging programming to introduce guests to the rich history of this one-of-a-kind county.
From the Miami and Potawatomi tribes who lived here, to the treaty that opened the area up for transportation allowing the development of the Wabash-Erie Canal and the Big Four Railroad, to the many innovative people who have built and led world-impacting businesses, and more, the Museum provides a look at history that is both global and personal.
Annually, the Museum welcomes thousands of members, guests, tourists, and school children through our doors.
The Wabash County Museum is a not-for-profit, operating entirely through
memberships, admissions, and private donations.
To inspire children, connect families, and create community engagement through an appreciation of local history and culture that focuses on research, education, and quality of life interests.
