Huron County Museum

The Huron County Museum is home to historical and cultural exhibitions, both temporary and permanent.  Thousands of artifacts illustrate the history of both rural and urban communities in a variety of themes and topics. Permanent exhibitions feature early settlement, agriculture, military and main street galleries including a full-size steam locomotive central to the building. A variety of temporary exhibitions throughout the year investigate and explore topics of local significance.

Located in the original old Central School, erected in 1856, the Huron County Museum’s original collection was brought together by Mr. Joseph Herbert Neill (1884-1969) as a result of a lifetime of collecting. Today, the Huron County Museum consists of over 25,000 sq. feet of gallery and visitor support space and an additional 15,000 sq. feet of collections storage and maintenance space.
