Allen County Museum

The Allen County Museum, is one of the state's finest historical museums. The day will fly by as you wander through rooms at your own pace or take a guided tour given by one of the museum's experienced docents. The museum offers exhibits for all ages and includes Native American and pioneer displays; local history exhibits; a steam and electric railroad collection; firefighting equipment; mineral and fossil displays; library; and a scale model of George Washington's Mount Vernon home. These are just a few of the favorite exhibits, but there are many others. Displays are changed often, so you can visit again and again and always see something different.
