At the Wabash County Museum, our mission is 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. We strive to be a living, breathing exploration center for local history – not just a “graveyard for old stuff.” 

From the Miami and Potawatomi tribes who lived here to the development of the Wabash-Erie Canal and the Big Four Railroad, to the many innovative and talented people who inhabit the county, the Museum provides a look at history that is both global and personal.

The Wabash County Museum has something for everyone! Here at the Museum, we welcome more than 18,000 guests per year, including history enthusiasts, young families, art lovers, and life-long learners. We also offer a research center where you can come in and have access to family genealogy records, photo collections, and more.
