Your Window into Clark County History

The Clark County Museum, Inc., was formed in 2008 by a group of people who were collectors of Clark County artifacts and memorabilia and who understood the importance of our county both in Indiana and United States history. Our goal was to establish a county museum dedicated to the acquisition, storage, display, and interpretation of these artifacts.

Our Mission

Our mission is to collect, preserve display and interpret artifacts pertaining to the history of Clark County. These artifacts are messages from our past to the people of the future.

The museum collection ranges from the era of Native Americans to the present and includes family papers, photograph collections, early maps, clothing, Edwardian toys, vehicles, artworks, and archaeological artifacts of Clark County, to name a few. See the Exhibits page to get a glimpse of what we have on public display.
