We love going to the museum, and when they have the car show outside. Hubby thinks the gun collection is amazing. I like to see everything, but usually spend more time looking at the old cars !!!

The historical society museum is a gem. So much to see during the self tour, however, the staff is willing to answer questions. During the late summer there is a re-enactment of the civil war. History buffs love this place.

A lot of really cool and interesting artifacts and history at this museum, well worth a visit here for a $6 dollar entry fee. My wife and I will definitely return and bring visiting family here. I recommend for anyone who enjoys learning about this area. The Rogers, from Goshen Indiana

My granddaughter loves to hear stories of the past. So, I took her to this museum. She had such a good time. She is 8 years old and couldn't get enough! She asked a lot of questions and had fun looking at the toys from yesteryear. She can't wait to visit again some time.

The museum houses not only a great variety of LaPorte area items (including much about Belle Gunness), but also some very interesting cars and a world-class gun collection. Definitely worth a visit!
