    About Us

    Established in 1916

    The Porter County Museum–also known as the PoCo Muse–is a small, yet dynamic institution that aims to share the stories of Porter County and its people. The museum features permanent as well as temporary exhibits, and provides educational programs year round. Several school groups, scout troops, and organizations come from all over the county to tour the museum and learn about Porter County’s history.

    Our local Museum began when the Historical Society of Porter County temporarily amassed artifacts to create a display for Indiana’s Centennial Celebration in 1916. When some of the contributors did not want their items back, the Museum’s collection was born. Our unique assortment of artifacts stems from the hard work, determination, and perseverance of several generations of Historical Society members and volunteers.
