Wayne County Historical Museum

Our museum is a unique showcase of Wayne County and world culture. Our founder, Julia Meek Gaar brought back items from her many world excursions to share with the children of Wayne County. From an Egyptian Mummy to cultural objects from Europe, Japan, and the Middle East and beyond, Your Wayne County Historical Museum can transport you to many times and places. As the museum’s first director, Mrs. Gaar collected objects that interpreted the vast history of Wayne County, and made important connections between Wayne County and the world at large. Comprised of eight buildings on a compact site, the museum is a unique repository of Wayne County history from early pioneer life through the industrial revolution into modern times.
Opening times: Monday - Friday: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Saturday: 1 p.m. - 4 p.m.
