Our Amazing Cabinet of Curiosities: Keepers of History for 150 Years

February 25, 2017 – January 7, 2018
Changing Gallery

 

In 1867–150 years ago–33 residents of St. Joseph County resolved to formally preserve local history. The organization they established 150 years ago was the second one of its type in Indiana. Today—as The History Museum—it has over a half million objects in its collection. From an iron lung to a voting machine, Our Cabinet of Curiosities showcases unique artifacts from the past 150 years and captures the essence of why history museums exist.
