Current Art Show
It is a place where you can stroll past showcase after showcase featuring one-of-a-kind treasures of a bygone era, with something to interest nearly everyone: fossil and mineral collections, Indian artifacts, the latest fashions of the Victoria era, a collection of over a hundred antique dolls, medical instruments from the pioneer days, and much more.
Even though the Old Courthouse is a storehouse of things past, the present is well represented also. Reknowned for its wonderful acoustics, the Old Courtroom now resounds with applause at the concerts, presentations and recitals held there each year.
We invite you to visit our art exhibitions featuring talented local artists, or attend one of our Spotlights, featuring communities, organizations, occupations or hobbies. Our genealogical research library is well-known throughout the country, and our new natural history area displays animals of our area in a lifelike setting. The Museum Office stocks books and maps about Iroquois County, as well as local area souvenirs.
